How To Plant Your Plant Box Garden

Not only does greenery look great in our homes, it makes us feel better, too. Our Plant Boxes are a great way to bring plants into your home and outside spaces. It’s all about finding combinations of plants that work well with each other and the space they’re inhabiting – whether it be a bright windowsill, a damp bathroom or a sun drenched balcony.

We’ve made up a little guide with some suggestions as to how to furnish the different models of the Plant Box with some of our favourite flora. With the right amount of love and care, they will reward you with beautiful colours, scents and in some cases, edible treats.

Plant Two Tier - Edible Garden 

Growing vegetables isn’t just for those with large outdoor spaces! Many species are easily grown in a pot on your balcony or in a light filled kitchen. With the Plant Box Two-Tier, you have room to plant a selection of edible greenery, as well as some extra space below to store your planting tools or kitchen utensils. We love a mixture of berries, Curly and Tuscan Kale as well as herbs like Oregano and Rosemary, which taste great on the dinner plate and are deliciously fragrant. Plant them as seeds, or take a shortcut by purchasing them as small plants at the garden centre so that you can enjoy them straight away.

Plant Box - Cactus 

Almost impossible to kill and easy to love – succulents are the ultimate go-to plants if your thumbs aren’t the greenest. The original Plant Box has ample room for your favourite cacti, which thrive in the desert, so make sure that they receive plenty of natural light and minimal moisture. Cacti grow during the summer months, during which they like to be watered weekly. They then go into a rest period during the winter, and you can reduce the watering significantly to once every other month. Make sure to keep cacti away from little fingers and paws, as their spikes are difficult and painful to remove.

Plant Box Round - Asparagus Fern 

Match the organic shape of the Plant Box Round to the wildness of the lovely Asparagus Fern. With minimal care required, the Asparagus Fern is a low-maintenance plant that thrives in both natural light and the darker corners of your home. It likes to be watered, but if you happen to forget, it can easily handle a dry period. Do be aware that, contrary to its name, the Asparagus Fern isn’t an edible plant, and can even be toxic for cats and dogs to ingest – so make sure to keep your furry friends from snacking on any low-hanging leaves.
