Best Plant Delivery Services for Adding Greenery in Isolation


Time and time again, indoor plants have been scientifically proven to better your life at home. From improving indoor air quality to quite literally making you happier, there are countless reasons why we should all be filling our homes with greenery — and lots of it.

Now, more than ever, when the world is spending more time indoors, looking for new hobbies to undertake and searching for ways to improve our lives at home, we’re recommending an indoor garden as a way to achieve both easily and affordably.

And although you may not be able to visit a nursery right now, there’s no need to fret, because a handful of small businesses are operating to send the joys of plants to you —pots and all. Here are some of our favourites.

Leaf Supply

Founded in 2017 by Lauren Camilleri and Sophia Kaplan, Leaf Supply is an indoor plant and pot delivery service ideal for those who wish to send a special gift that continues to grow.

Each month there are three new plant and pot styles to choose from — starting from $39 and ranging up to $99 depending on size. The Luxe Leaf offering is always comprised of a rarer plant variety perched inside a bespoke ceramic pot, and usually in collaboration with a local artist or craftsperson.

There is also a range of plant accessories like pots, potting mix and watering cans available in the online store.

Leaf Supply plants ship Australia-wide, though same-day delivery is available in Sydney.

The Plant Society

While The Plant Society has physical stores in both Melbourne and Sydney, all services have moved online and Australia-wide for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic to help bring plants and accessories to its customers.

In the online store, you’ll find a rare and beautiful selection of flora, along with a vast range of ceramic, designer, bespoke and exclusive indoor pots, plus books, planting accessories and treatments to keep your green babies happy.

In a note to their loyal customer base, founders Jason Chongue and Nathan Smith say: “This extra time at home is the perfect moment to find solace in gardening.

“We truly believe that gardening has a positive effect on our minds. Take this chance to propagate cuttings, sew some seasonal seeds and build your skills and confidence. Like many experienced gardeners, you will soon find content in nurturing your greenery.”

Plant In a Box

Plants In a Box has a vast range of both indoor and outdoor plants available online for purchase and free delivery around Australia, but what we love most about the Currumbin Valley-based start-up, are the curated and specially crafted plant packs.

Because not all plants are suited to every home, the plant service has a range of boxes available that includes the air-purifier pack, pet-friendly pack, and plant killer pack, for those who can’t seem to keep a cactus alive. Packs start from $69.95 for a pack of eight.

The online store also has everything you need to set up a comprehensive indoor garden, from pots and soil to watering devices.

One last thought

Small businesses need our support now more than ever, so if you’re looking for a way to help your locals and buy plants at the same time, consider reaching out to your neighbourhood nursery and seeing if they have plants available for pick-up or delivery.
