Frequently Asked Questions
General Information About BloomBox
What makes you any different than other plant E-Commerce sites?
Tired of getting plants that look beat up in a box? Or receiving twigs? With BloomBox, we control the entire process. Your plants are picked directly from our growing field, placed in a open top box and hand- delivered by our staff, in our vehicles. Your plants never bounce around in third party distribution centers. (If you’re home feel free to chat with us about your gardening, WE LOVE IT.)
Am I talking to a real person on your live chat?
Yes, when you use our live chat feature, you are speaking directly to a member of our customer service team.
Where are you located?
We have a headquarters and greenhouse in Lancaster PA. We have a second greenhouse in Baltimore, MD. We do not have a physical retail store at this time.
Where are your plants grown?
We have chosen specific local family owned and operated greenhouses, establishing relationships to receive the highest quality plants available. Under each plant listing will be the original growing location. All of our plants come from our region aside from tropical plants, which are sourced from Florida.
What size are your plants?
It depends on what type of plant you are buying. All sizes are stated in each plant page. Most annuals are delivered in 4.5” pots, and most perennials are delivered in quart-sized containers or gallons. All plants are 100% fully grown, in soil, and are not bare root. They are delivered to you exactly as you would find them at your local garden center.
Can I hold my order for a later delivery date?
No, we do not offer the ability to hold orders. We pride ourselves in fast delivery of fresh plants :)
Will my items be shipped?
No, all Bloombox orders are hand-delivered by a member of our staff, in our vehicles, in an open-top box. Live plants are never boxed.
How long will it take for my plants to arrive?
After placing your order, you can expect your delivery to arrive in 3-5 business days. For example, if you order Tuesday, you will receive your delivery between Friday and Monday. You will receive an email notification at 8 AM on the morning of your delivery day.
Can I pick my plants up?
No, we do not offer order pick-ups at this time.
You added my zip code, why am I still getting an error?
If you previously entered your zip code on our site, received an "out of area" message, and we told you we added your area to the site: you need to re-enter your zip code.
- Click the "[Zip code] is outside our delivery area" button at the top of the site
- Click the "Try a different delivery zip code" link on the popup
- Your zip code should still be in the text field, if not: enter it again and click submit
This should reset all of the internet magic to give you access to shop with BloomBox!
