"It is more blessed to give than to receive." It's been proven that giving makes us feel good: it increases our connectedness to people and demonstrates how we feel about them. So why not treat your loved one, your colleague or even yourself. Plants make great gifts, adding a splash of greenery to a space, purifying the air (also proven) and making people feel happy. They can last for years given the right care and we provide Plant Care Cards with each living gift to help that happen. Here are some options for three different occasions.
FOR THE OFFICE
Work spaces can be pretty busy places that don't cater for high-maintenance plants. If you’re looking for a plant that will add a splash of green to your work environment but doesn’t need a lot of upkeep a great option is Mother-in Law’s Tongue (Sansevieria Trifasciata).This is an easy-to-care for plant that can survive in full sun or in spots with very little light. It doesn’t require a lot of water so it's a good option for busy workers who sometimes forget to water plants or who may be out of the office for few days.
A BIRTHDAY GIFT
Plants make fantastic birthday presents. If your recipient has pets and you want something that's non-toxic to dogs and cats look no further than the fabulous Calathea range. There are so many options: Freddie, Makoyana, Orbifolia, Zebrina, Lancifolia and Rufibarba (gotta love the names!)
Or, if you’re looking to spend a little bit more, consider one of our multi-plant boxes or a monthly plant subscription. At Bosque we offer three- and six-month plant subscriptions with a new plant and ceramic pot dispatched on the first Monday of each month for the duration of the subscription. People LOVE getting a surprise each month.
A THANK YOU GIFT
Sometimes someone - family member, friend, work colleague - really goes the extra mile. A plant is great thank you gift that reminds them of your gratitude whenever they look at it. A super cute option is the Heartleaf Philodendron which has "love" written all over it. These little fellows are very hardy and can be trained to grow up a support or hang down from a shelf - either way they look fab.
