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.

The Red Mixed Box consists of a mixture of red plants selected by the experienced Plant Manager here. They will be a beautiful selection of plants that will bring your aquascape to life.

Red plants in the aquarium are highly desirable due to the instant impact they bring to the aquascape. They can be a little bit more demanding due to their need for high light which is how they get their colour. Without this strong light, the colour intensity will fade gradually.

Provide these plants with plenty of good fertilisers and good lighting and you will be pleased as punch you chose a box!! 

The picture shows a 'typical' Red Mixed Box however that does not mean you will get the exact plants in the picture. You will however get red plants! Your box of plants may either be 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 product when your not sure what to get.
Plants delivered in excellent and healthy condition, very well packed,good selection of lush plants. Would have been even better if you had the option to choose your own choice of mixed plants if preferred. Would definitely recommend and will be back for more.

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.
