Pointless Plants is on a mission to make our planet a greener, healthier and happier place to live. For every order made, we plant 10 trees!

Hello, I'm Nathan, the founder of Pointless Plants. Once upon a time, I was an airline pilot. Becoming an airline pilot had always been my dream job; but, the strange thing was, it never really matched my expectations. After a few years of flying, I knew I could be doing more than spraying jet fuel over the planet.

I’ve always found plants fascinating and pretty much every time I bought fruit from the supermarket, I would use its seeds to propagate its plants. My go-to favourite was the mango: I could get a tree out of a little seed. I began pondering the logistics of starting a mango tree farm in a one-bedroom flat in Crawley. I thought, “We could give this mango tree a name. We could call it Maggy, give it a story and Maggy would be our pal forever.” Of course, being the level-headed person in our relationship, my girlfriend said “That's POINTLESS!”. And so Pointless Plants was born.

Pointless Plants is on a mission to make our planet a greener, healthier and happier place to live. We do this by offering affordable plants to everyone and providing the best service we can - all while giving back to the planet.For every order made, we plant 10 trees somewhere in the world.

We do not measure our success by looking at our balance sheet. We measure our success by looking at how many trees we have planted in shrinking forests around the world. Our commitment to planting trees isn’t just a gimmick; we really believe that it has the power to change the world.

Planting trees has a huge number of benefits, including:

- Restoring animals’ habitats, which, in turn helps increase biodiversity by giving endemic species the chance to thrive

- Removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by putting it back into the plants and soil, and therefore helping to reduce global warming.

- Restoring local ecosystems that have been destroyed by deforestation.

We send our plants using a next day delivery trusted courier service which will give you shipping updates and the opportunity to rearrange delivery. We do leave a delivery instruction to leave box in a safe place as a quick delivery ensures quality of our plants are maintained. This should also avoid having to reschedule missed deliveries.

99% of the time our plants are delivered safely. Occasionally plants may arrive a little bit damaged. In this case send us a picture within 72hours and we will be more than happy to replace them.

We ship using a next day delivery but, sometimes we need a 3-7day period to process your order. This is because demand fluctuates, we may need extra packing time or plants availability has changed at the last minute. We try our best to make delivery as quick as possible and we are working very hard on reducing our dispatch time.
