    About Mixed Boxes

    Mixed Boxes are the best way to add lots of plants into your aquarium without the hassle of having to choose the plants - leave it up to the experts!

    Our plant manager will persoanlly pick your plants choosing a range of foreground, midground and background plants. All mixed boxes have a range of colours and sizes so when they arrive with you, it looks beautiful immediately.

    What size should I choose?

    Select the mixed box that is closest to your aquarium taking into consideration any wood or rocks you already have in there. If that's the case, try the next size down.

    Can I request specific plants in a Mixed Box?

    You can't request specific plants but if you'd like more foreground than background for eg, shoot us a message and we'll see what we can do for you.

    Our Delivery Promise to you

    If you choose Express Delivery, we will replace any plants that are damaged due to delays. Express Delivery is a fast, trackable, and reliable option with a one hour delivery window. It also ensures that the plants will arrive in the same condition as when they left our facility. If you choose a different postage option, such as Tracked 24 or Tracked 48, you will not be covered for any damages due to delays and will assume the risk yourself if the plants do not arrive in good condition. Express Delivery includes an insurance policy, which may cost more but provides added peace of mind.


If you order before 4pm we dispatch the same working day (Mon-Fri). Shipping prices start at £4.99 depending on the speed of delivery required.

    With an aquascape in mind, we've put together a superb mixture of potted aquarium plants that have been chosen by our experienced Plant Manager. These are not your average plants and you won't find anything like it elsewhere - in fact, the complete opposite. Super fresh, well rooted, strong, healthy and algae free. This is a surprise box of plants that will vary each week depending on what aquarium plants we have in stock. You will not find better quality anywhere - we guarantee you that.

    You now have 2 choices - choose whether you want:

    1. Standard - selection of plants from the main area of the greenhouse.
    2. Premium - selection from entire greenhouse where our premium priced plants are added along with rare or slow growing species that simply cost more.

    Mixed boxes are perfect for anyone who's considering setting up a planted aquarium but are looking for an economical start with the highest quality aquarium plants available in the UK. You may not be sure which plants to choose so leave it up to us and we will do the selecting for you. Our expert Plant Manager knows just what looks right with the correct colour combinations and sizes.


    • A selection of foreground, midground and background plants.
    • A combination of either all potted plants from the greenhouse OR a mix of potted plants and tissue cultured plants (which allows for the very best selection, range and colours).
    • Great saving.

    Once you receive these plants we know you'll be absolutely delighted with the choice and quality. Aqua Essentials has an amazing reputation for quality and we always live up to it. Once you receive your mixed box, it's entirely up to you as to how you plant them in your aquarium. Always remove them from their pots and rockwool and then give them space to grow.

    Don't forget your fertilisers when choosing your plants. Without fertilisers, you don't give plants the food they need to grow. We use Neutro Fertilisers in our nursery and we recommend you do too.

    Good mix

    This was a good mix of plants which I purchased with the Amazon collection to mix in the tank, well packaged and marked for identification, will not buy from local stores again because this quality is good and no snails


    My order came in perfect timing all the plants were in healthy and perfect condition any questions I had the aqua essentials team were more than happy to answer and help me

    Cherelle Thompson
    So many great plants!

    I didn’t realised so many would come in the box when I selected my option, but they were all healthy! Unfortunately, my guppy have torn most of them to shreds, but the ones that are surviving are doing alright.
    Make sure you get the right amount for your tank size. As I still ended up with too many x

    Great Plants

    Great selection of plants, for the front, middle and back of the aquarium. Really pleased with the selection I got. Everything was packaged really well and all the plants were really healthy! Also when splitting them for planting I had so much I put some in my second tanks.

    Fantastic healthy plants already well established after only 7 days

    We're environmentally friendly

    • 1. Sustainable Packaging

    • 2. Fast Delivery

    • 3. Guarantee

    Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

    Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...

    We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
