Parents who fear being neglectful tend to hire nannies; people who fear killing their plants hire Funky Buds.
The local flower shop’s newly launched plantscaping program outfits your home with fresh greens and buds that won’t kick it.
During a free at-home consultation with owner Leticia Booth, she’ll suggest vases, pots, and species that match your vision and interior style (modern, traditional, or beachy cool, perhaps?). Go with cut stems (roses, gardenia, peonies, whatever’s in season) or choose from nearly 30 native shrubs (orchids, sansevieria, palms). Can’t decide? Just rent a potted plant.
Depending on your plants’ needs, Booth will visit weekly or biweekly to check on water levels and fertilization, dust for shine, and examine overall health. If one of your babies isn’t looking so green, she’ll replace it at no extra cost.
Even if your black thumb was the cause of death.
Funky Buds (email@example.com or facebook.com), maintenance plan (three-plant minimum) starts at $90 per month; weekly flower delivery starts at $60 per month. DailyCandy readers who book a consultation by September 30 get free maintenance for one month.
