I am not green fingered in the slightest, my grandad would be appalled!
Whilst I grew up watching him tend his colourful gardens, complete with fruit trees, mine resembles something out of the Day of the Triffids! I learned a long time ago that if I just leave flowers, plants and even an indoor plant to their own devices, they grow – I try and ‘help’ them and something inevitably goes wrong… :/
Imagine my own surprise when I agreed to work on a Plant Pet Club review… that involves keeping an indoor plant! I did though and last week, the latest addition to our family arrived… ‘Barnaby’ the Banana Plant – I decided to give the plant a name because it may help nuture it successfully!
When the Banana Plant from Plant Pet Club first arrived…
A week on in my care…
Now, it may not look as if much has happened, besides the fact I have managed to keep an indoor plant alive for a week – but a new leaf will be emerging soon!
Following the advice on the included Banana Plant Care Card carefully, I have successfully managed to guide Barnaby through his first week in the Sim’s Lifeindoor house!
What is Plant Pet Club?
Plant Pet Club is exactly what you would expect, a subscription service for people who love indoor plants – or complete beginners who have no idea where to start. Choose from an indoor plant subscription box (single and multiple month options available) or Jungle Bundles – both ideal options, especially for novices wanting to add foliage to their homes.
Founded by Anna who is a plant lover and loves to share her passion, she realised people are becoming more aware of the benefits of keeping air purifying indoor plants. It’s true that plants do make us happier and I can wholeheartedly state that looking after Barnaby this week has given me a purpose and I’m overjoyed the plant is doing well! After losing our beloved pet last year, our home has felt empty without a fur bundle to look after and whilst a plant isn’t as cuddly, it is giving Liv and I something to look after. Though if you do have pets, all the plants received from the Plant Pet Club subscription service are pet friendly!
How does the Plant Pet Club work?
Subcribers to the Plant Pet Club can be rest assured they will receive beautiful hardy plants that have been nurtured by Anna before free plant delivery to your door. All plants include a really easy to follow 4 step care card to help you look after your plant as soon as it is out of the box! You have several subscription options to choose from with each plant arriving in it’s own beautiful pot – which is super handy for people who do not have a plant pot to hand. Hardy plants are sent out to begin with, giving you time to find your green fingers, so when you find your feet you can be introduced to more exotic varities.
You can check out the subscription and Jungle bundle options here and a rather special Mother’s Day special option here.
Whilst we may not actually be growing any bananas soon, unfortunately the weather conditions in the UK aren’t ripe for that (see what I did there!), we are enjoying nurturing our banana plant and will continue to do so!
Make sure you check back soon for a lovely Plant Pet Club Mother’s Day giveaway and the chance to win a lovely gift for your mum! 🙂
