Excellent!

We love our new dracaena compacta! It came expertly packaged, in a beautiful white ceramic pot, and dressed with a vibrant green moss. We'll certainly be ordering more from Leon & George.

What is Léon & George, and how does it work?

Léon & George delivers healthy and beautiful indoor plants to your door—already potted, styled, and ready for their closeup. Every delivery also includes a 45-day guarantee and lifetime plant care support to keep your leafy friends happy and healthy. Customers can choose the size and variety of plant as well as specify the pot color and styling, or keep things simple and take a recommendation from one of our stylists.

What if I travel somewhere – will my indoor plants die?

Not necessarily, especially if you plan ahead a bit. If you're going away for a week or less, there should be no problem if you soak the soil in advance. And if you're going away for longer check out our blog post or send us an email at hello@leonandgeorge.com and we'll give you instructions for prepping your plant for the long haul.

Your plants look so perfect in the pictures… Are they real?!

Yes! Our plants are 100% real, which means that they'll need a little TLC to keep growing. But thanks to our plant care and design team, they'll be styled, nurtured, and primed for life indoors before they arrive at your door. And we promise, if you're kind to your plants, they'll return the favor! Learn about the health benefits of spending time around plants.

Can I send a plant as a gift? How does that work?

We're a little biased, but we think plants make the perfect gift. Start by selecting the delivery location at the top of any Léon & George webpage. That way, you'll see exactly which plants are available. After you pick out a plant, simply fill in the recipient's address for shipping. You can even add a personal note for them at checkout, and we'll include it with their delivery. White-glove deliveries (for large and extra large plants only) can be scheduled at checkout. In this case, be sure to let the recipient know to be home during the delivery window.

What's included with the plant when it's delivered as a gift?

Every gift order includes the plant and pot set, simple care instructions to keep the plant happy and healthy. Gift orders are also covered under our 45-day guarantee and our Plant Doctor program, which means the recipient can call us anytime for plant care support.
