Beautiful easy-care plants for your outdoor space
Our outdoor plant collections are designed for gardeners and non-gardeners alike. We carefully select plants that go together, and thrive in a wide range of conditions. We always aim to surprise and delight, and hopefully will be able to introduce you to some plants that you aren't so familiar with too!
So many of us these days are gardening in small spaces: we've designed every outdoor plant collection to perfectly fit balcony container gardens and window boxes, but of course all the plants we send you grow beautifully when planted directly into the ground too.
Our subscriptions are designed for busy people who crave a closer connection to nature, who don't have the time to research all the plant varieties that they love and learn what grows well together. We take all the hassle out of plant shopping and bring a beautiful bunch to your door every 1, 2 or 3 months.
Plants for pollinators
Bee and pollinator populations are in decline, in part due to reduction in habitats and availability of flowering plants. By planting pollinator plants in your outdoor space, you're doing your bit to reduce that decline.
We are committed to always including pollinator plants in our outdoor plant subscriptions. Business can be a force for good in the world: we want to prove this and this step is just the beginning.
30-day plant guarantee
We're so confident in the quality of our plants that we will replace or refund any plants that don't make it past the first 30 days in your home.
Recycled and recyclable
We ship all our plants in packaging that is 100% recycled and recyclable.
We always aim to work with growers with excellent sustainability credentials.
Best in class delivery
Shipping plants by post is hard. Plants are fragile, they require controlled atmospheric conditions. We transport all our plants by 24-hour courier with our delivery partner, DPD. Over 99% of our parcels are successfully delivered, contactlessly, on the first attempt, no signature needed.

Outdoor plants FAQs
When will I get my first delivery?
If you do not select a delivery date, we will ship your delivery on the earliest available delivery date. You will receive a notification when your delivery is about to be sent. We usually need just 48 hours to ship your order to you. Delivery days are Tuesday-Thursday, or Wednesday-Thursday on bank holiday weeks.
Sometimes, if the weather is very hot, or very cold, we might delay shipping plants to give them the best chance of arriving with you in prime condition. If this happens, we'll let you know.
Is there a guarantee on the plants?
Yes! We're so confident in the quality of our plants that we will replace or refund any plants that don't make it past the first 30 days in your home.
Can I pause my subscription or skip a month?
Yes. You can use your Lazy Flora account to skip a month if you are planning to be away, or drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you prefer a different delivery date to the one listed.
Where do you deliver?
We deliver across the mainland UK for free and use DPD as our preferred carrier. We also ship to Ireland for a small additional charge.
How long will the plants last?
Lazy Flora outdoor plant collections are designed to last for up to three months, although some will last longer and some may be a little shorter than this. We include a mix of perennials which means they will come into bloom year after year and some annuals which means they will last for just a year. With the annuals, this means you can replace and introduce new plants into your design from your new deliveries!
Are the plants easy to look after?
At Lazy Flora we want to make gardening as easy as possible for you while still delivering beautiful and noteworthy plants. The majority of our plants are more on the low-maintenance side which helps if you’re super busy and don’t have much time. Some of our plants will require more attention than others, but we will always give you a detailed care guide so you know exactly how to care for each one.
I have a reputation for killing plants. Is Lazy Flora for me?
Lazy Flora is great for complete beginners, as well as those looking to improve their gardening skills, and the gardening novice. It’s also great for those with more advanced plant knowledge, but who are short of time, or who find it hard to get to a garden centre.
We prepare plant care information for every plant we send out in our outdoor subscriptions, and planting up guides, which describe what conditions the plant best thrives in and also covers watering, humidity, flowering, etc. You might have a specific question about your plant and we have a team of gardening gurus on hand ready to help. All you have to do is email them on email@example.com. We also have lots of blog posts about the plants we send to you and other information that you might find useful on our website.
Are the outdoor plants delivered in a planter?
No – we ship the outdoor plants in small, usually plastic, pots that you will need to then plant up into a container or directly into the ground. We have a limited range of planters available to buy on our site.
Are your plants pet-friendly?
Pets are a big part of our lives here at Lazy Flora, but unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that our Outdoor plant collections are pet friendly. We do mark all pet friendly plants on our information leaflets when the plants are delivered. We do offer pet-friendly Indoor plant subscriptions. If that’s very important to you, go check them out!
My outdoor space gets a lot of direct sunlight/never gets any sunlight/is super windy, is Lazy Flora for me?
All our Lazy Flora outdoor plants are designed to live in the widest extremes of situations possible. In all situations, you do have to use your judgement in order to best care for the plants. If it looks as though your plants are getting damaged from being blown around by a strong wind, you might like to try moving them to a more sheltered location, if you have one. If your balcony is a sun trap, you will need to water them more often.
How long does it take to plant up my Lazy Flora outdoor plants?
For a complete newbie gardener, we think it will take about 25 minutes from opening the box to a fabulous Instagram-ready moment. And if you happen to film an unboxing and post that on your social media profile, well we'd be seriously thrilled to see it!
Where are your plants grown?
We source the majority of our plants from The Netherlands and the UK. Sometimes we also receive plants from Denmark and Italy.
Do you deliver plants all year round?
Yes we do! Just because the weather is cold and wet in autumn and winter it doesn’t mean that mother-nature hasn’t got some amazing treasures up her sleeve! We seek out the absolute best of every season and deliver a unique and uplifting outdoor garden collection every week of the year.
How soon after receiving my delivery do I need to plant the plants?
Plants are living things and will die if they are too hot, too cold, or if they don’t get enough water. Plants hate being transported and don’t do well in packaging for long, so it’s really important that you plant up your plants as soon as possible after receiving them. We’re talking a maximum of 24 hours in the packaging after you’ve received your delivery.
If you aren’t able to plant up the outdoor plants within 24 hours, that’s OK, but it’s important that you water your new plants within 24 hours of having received them. Plants in small plant pots dry out extremely quickly – much quicker than plants that are in a container garden – so it’s really important that you do this as soon as you can.
What do I pay and when?
Each box that is delivered will cost £45.00. This means that if you choose to have a box delivered once a month then the payment is £45.00 each month. If you wish to spread out your deliveries to every two or three months this means you will pay £45.00 every two or three months. You do not pay anything if you do not receive a delivery that month.*
*Some legacy customers are on a pay monthly plan that splits £45 payments over three months, and they receive a delivery every THREE months: this product is no longer on sale.
