Amazing experience from pick-up to unpacking to showing off my new plant!

Beautiful packaging, arrived in great shape even though I couldn’t pick it up from UPS for a few days. It adds a whole new feel to my apartment and I couldn’t be happier!

Amazing customer care!

Leon&George don't just sell you the plants, but are there to help you keep them alive and thriving. Every week I get emails with useful tips and guidance since I bought my first plant from them 7 months ago. My latest order, a Zanzibar Gem, arrived not like I expected it. The plant was healthy but the stems where crooked, almost horizontally. Soon after I contacted Leon&George they sent me a second plant which looks great! Although there are plant nurseries closer to where I live (MD), I don't think I can find better costumer care. Thank you Leon&George for making sure both my plants and I are happy!

It arrived frozen. I know thats a problem this time a year. Even as carefully it was packaged. I called customer service and they responded immediately. They’re sending out a new plant. Love to do business with a company that stands behind their products.

Plants looks great and exactly what I had wanted

When one plant ended up damaged upon receipt, L&G replaced immediately and without any fuss or muss. They also make sure to ship the replacement at a time when it minimized the opportunity for winter and UPS to hurt it. Love the customer service

Featured Questions

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. After you pick out a plant, simply fill in the recipient's address for shipping. You can add a gift message and select the shipping date at checkout. Order departs via UPS/FedEx at the desired date.

How are your plants packaged for shipping?

We take great care in packaging each and every plant set to ensure it arrives in pristine condition. Our innovative, custom packaging allows us to not only protect our delicate ceramic planters but also any variety of living greenery. During winter months, we use insulating materials to protect foliage and roots, and in summer, we wrap plants to boost humidity inside their box. Unboxing is easy and delightful, just ask any of our customers!

Ordering extra large plant sets for shipping? Please note that extra large plant sets are sent in two separate parcels. One parcel contains the plant, secure within its plastic nursery pot. The second parcel contains the ceramic pot and wood stand, if applicable. Shipments are carefully timed to ensure that both parcels are received simultaneously, and tracking is provided as soon as the parcels ship.

What makes Léon & George different from other online plant shops?

We’ve made it our mission to provide the highest quality of products and the highest quality of experiences to our customers. 

Exceptional Products

When you shop with Léon & George, you receive hand-selected, California grown greenery which has been carefully inspected for quality, beauty, and size. We source our plants from local growers that we trust. Every Léon & George plant is trimmed, cleaned, styled, and treated with our own all-natural soap, fertilizers and insecticides, in-house.

Léon & George plants are fitted into the highest quality of small batch, hand-finished stoneware ceramic pots, which are renowned for their high-fire, waterproof, ultra-strong material. The plants are potted for optimal airflow and drainage, and finished with decorative preserved forest moss.

Our plant care items are formulated in-house and produced locally using organic ingredients and time-tested recipes.

Every plant set is processed swiftly and securely shipped in custom-engineered insulated packaging to your address. 

Local delivery in California epitomizes ease of use, with streamlined communication and exemplary customer service as our team delivers and places your plant in your desired location.

Try our service and experience the Léon & George difference. Our commitment to quality is our legend, and it’s how we’ve become the foremost industry leader in greenery.

What is the moisture meter and how does it work?

Starting in March 2021, all large and extra large plant sets will include a sleek, innovative moisture meter that will tell you when it’s time to water. 

This moisture meter does not require batteries and uses a simple color scale: blue = no need to water, white = time to water. To use, gently insert as deep as possible into your plant’s soil, taking care not to damage any roots. Wait 20-30 minutes to read. If the window is completely white, water your plant as instructed on your care card. If the window is blue, hold off on watering until it turns completely white. You may leave the moisture meter in the soil of your plant, or remove it and insert again when you believe it may be time to water. 

Find more details and information about your new moisture meter here, or purchase them on their own here.

Please note that Léon & George does not take responsibility for damage caused by incorrect or forceful use of the moisture meter. 

What's included with each plant set?

When you purchase a plant from Léon & George, you're getting a lot more than just a plant. Here's what's included with each of our sets:

  • Hand selected, California grown greenery, inspected for quality, beauty, and size. A plant that's trimmed, cleaned, styled, and treated with all natural soap and insecticide.
  • Fitting to a handmade, 100% ceramic pot. Each plant is potted for optimal airflow and drainage, and our ceramics are fully water sealed which means they won't damage your floors. Plant sets are finished with decorative preserved forest moss.
  • Optional handmade wood stands, crafted with teak or mahogany wood and finished with non-VOC natural oil finish. Our stands also include felt pads to protect your floors. Upon arrival, easy care instructions for your plant.
  • For large and extra large plants, a complimentary moisture meter that tells you when it's time to water.
  • Lifetime access to our Plant Doctors for any necessary plant care support along the way.
