  1. I had no idea there were so many plant subscription boxes out there. I think it’s such a great idea as it spreads greenery around and gives people unique plants to grow. The only downside is the limited shipping, which I can totally understand. I will have to see if there are any in Canada because I absolutely want to sign up to some if there are.

    1. Hi Sarah, I love how I never know what kind of plant I’ll get – it’s such a fun surprise each month! I plan on researching Canadian (and UK as well) plant subscription boxes. Let me know if you find one that you like and I’ll add it to the list 😀
