Buying plants on Amazon was something I was cautious about.

Would they arrive dried out and crumbled? How would they survive the postal system?

Would they arrive dried out and crumbled? How would they survive the postal system?

But when I was buying products to do a DIY gardening post, Amazon had the quickest delivery option and I was in a rush.

So I bought this multi-pack of succulents (8 plants for £9.50) to make a hanging planter. You can see the end result in this post, but TL:DR, I was pleasantly surprised!

And a six months on, they are thriving!

I've had so many pups (this is what succulent babies are called) that I've gifted a baby one to most people who've come by my house, as well as my neighbours. I've planted some pups on in a little dish with some gravel at the bottom too. They're incredibly difficult to kill, and only need watering once a week.

And if you don't believe me, the reviews also speak for themselves.

Amazon

They're rated 4.8/5 on Amazon, and have 115 reviews.

"Very nice set of plants, all were healthy and the set I received was almost exactly as pictured in the listing. I have attached a photo of them in a planter the day I received them (obviously you don't get that pot)

Each plant came with a plug of soil and I estimate each to be about the diameter of a £2 coin. Definitely recommended if you like succulents." – Amazon Customer

"Nice healthy plants promptly delivered ( ordered in the morning and arrived the following day!). The plants come in a numbered tray and an accompanying email gives the names. I labelled them straight away and took a picture in case they got mixed up. I then potted them up in an old broken terra cotta flowerpot that I was otherwise going to discard. Very happy with the plants, the service and the outcome!" – R. Harrison
