In preparation for my pop up shop I decided to purchase my succulents on line. Mainly because I was running out of time to go to my local nursery. So I purchased six plants from Mountain Crest Gardens.
I thought I’d do a little unboxing post as that seems to be all the rage.
In my mind I was expecting a large box…not sure why…but I was. Instead this cute little box arrived.
On the top inside of the box are the care instructions and a little thank you card. It’s nice that it’s right on top so you can’t lose it or accidentally discard it with the box.
Here’s how they pack the inside to protect the plants. You need to be a little careful pulling it all out as you don’t want to accidentally pull on a plant. And let me tell you…there is a lot of packing material. It filled a gallon Ziploc bag. Saved that, too…because you never know when you need some packing material.
This weekend, I was able to plant and here are the before and afters.
My succulent cocktails and hanging ladle will be on sale this Saturday at my pop up shop (you know I was going to do one last plug).
Overall I was very impressed with Mountain Crest Gardens products and can’t wait to order more. The only drawback is that they only ship Monday through Wednesday…which makes since for delivery dates…but it makes for a very long impatient wait when you order on a Wednesday night. Lol. Therefore, plan accordingly.
Hope you give them a try for your next succulent project.
Come see me this Saturday, May 11 at my Pop Up Shop!
