Plant Sizes

Just wanted to give you a heads up that the image of the plant you'll be receiving is just an example of what you can expect. Each plant is unique and may vary in size and shape, so it won't be an exact match to the photo. If we provide a size guide, keep in mind that it's just an estimate and that plants can vary in size depending on the time of year.

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.

The 'Not So Perfect' bundle is a set of 3 plants below our usual standards. Rather than recycling them, we wanted to give them one last chance. These plants are in this bundle due to being damaged from transport when sent to us.

You cannot choose/ask for background, mid-ground or foreground plants - it's potluck. PLEASE DO NOT ASK to avoid disappointment. 

You might receive: 

  • Potted plants
  • Bunches
  • Tissue culture plants
  • You might also receive all the same species.
  • No tags/labels, plastic pots or any plant weights included

The picture is purely an example. These plants are not perfect so don't expect them to be.

Really bad

I have had "not so perfect plants" before and some of the plants are good But this time not one plant was any good they were all rotting really disappointed and they were all the same plant except for one but they were all rotten. Would have sent a picture but I had to clean my aquarium because they were all floating bits and I didn't want my fish to get ill

Michael Papp
Great plants

This was a purchase of the 'Tired' complaints from me. Placed into the aquarium added the good old CO2 and they parked up straight away after the postal journey.
5⭐️as always.

Healthy and quality plants

Just ordered two to be on the safe side and now do I wish I had ordered more. One plant was a bit tired looking and a few brown leaves. But it perked up once I put it into the tank. The others.. I do not know what was wrong with them but they are perfectly fine. I can't wait for this to be back in stock. I got a nice variety of foreground and mid ground plants.


Good value. Decent plants. Just hope they survive.

Keith Richardson
Good for the money

Got them in the new tank. 🤞they do well.


Plants were very tiny and have now been eaten by my fish


We received 2: packs of not-so-perfect plants and were very impressed. Nice selection - not all the same, one stunning shocking-pink underleafed plant, others were plants we didn’t already have. They looked a bit sad on day one, but are doing extremely well now - day 5. Great bargain, thankyou.

Plants arrived in poor condition, not looking great

Christopher Andrews
Not so Perfect

Usually find these great, but unfortunately this time I was very disappointed. Plants arrived mostly dead or falling apart.

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.
