Sweeties Proflowers Review & Giveaway WINNER

The winner of the Proflowers prize is:

@proflowers This past week I was given the opportunity to review a Proflowers item by choosing from a selection on the Proflowers website. I chose the Juniper Bonsai, well, I let my husband, Greg choose what he wanted and that is what he picked. He loves plants as much as I do and we both figured he could use this as a project over the winter – which is coming faster than I would like. Wait, didn’t Summer just start?

Once we placed our order we just waited for our plant to arrive. It came fast enough and was delivered by Fedex.

I was surprised to see that Proflowers uses Eco-friendly packaging which is nice to see. On the outside of the box is a Gift Message so the person you are sending your flower arrangement, gift basket, or plant to will be able to read your greeting right away.

Inside you will also be surprised at how well your item is packaged. Proflowers had a special insert made just for this plant. It was in two parts. The first part kept the plant secured and the second part protected the plant itself. Very clever!

Once unpackaged I found that the pot was wrapped to keep the soil intact. Inside was an instruction booklet, which my husband read, word for word. Did you know that a Bonsai isn’t a plant? It is a method of pruning a plant. I never knew that. You can take lots of different plants and turn them into Bonsai trees. Proflowers has Juniper, Gardenia, and Azalea Bonsai plants.

The Bonsai plant itself was very healthy and in perfect condition and it came in a super nice glazed ceramic planter. We look forward to our new plant project.
