Botanic Box Is Brisbane's New Monthly Plant Subscription Service
Get new plants — and handmade art — delivered to your door each month.
Subscriptions aren't just for magazines, wine, cheese, cars, ramen and streaming platforms. Thanks to Botanic Box, they're also for plants. Created by Brisbanite Rhiannon Campbell, the service brings a new bundle of greenery to your door each and every month.
If the idea sounds somewhat familiar, that's because fellow Brisbane outfit The Succy Bunch does something similar — but while it changes its selection twelve times a year, you can't sign up on ongoing basis. With Botanic Box, packages range from three to six to twelve months, bringing you a different plant and a handmade item each month for the duration of your subscription.
It's the type of service that seems tailor-made for folks with green thumbs but lazy feet — that is, anyone who'd love to get a heap of new plants, but can never make it to a market or nursery to buy one themselves. More than that, Botanic Box doesn't just feature the kinds of greenery that you could just pick up on your travels. Rather, your plants — maybe a fiddle leaf fig, a succulent or a eucalyptus — will arrive with handmade pots, art cards, key rings and more accompanying each delivery.
As well as teaming up with a range of local growers, the service highlights a different artist and maker each month, with previous partnerships including Lush Succulents, studio Nikulinsky, Kojo Kokedamas and Lazer Unicorn. This is all about one-off collaborations that showcase local talent and add a nice dash of nature to your house.
While October subscriptions have already closed off, anyone that's on the books for November will benefit from Botanic Box's team-up with ethical skincare company Two Winged Fruit.
Subscriptions start at $49.95 per month, and you can purchase one for yourself or sign someone else up as a gift. Or, if you're feeling less than financial, you can drop hints to everyone you know that Christmas is around the corner.
