Here are a selection of the most frequent asked questions (FAQ’s).
What is a Mind in Bloom Box subscription/ gift experience?
Mind in Bloom is a mindful gardening and floristry subscription box that teaches you how to mindfully grow and arrange your own cut flowers as a way to relax.
Who is a Mind in Bloom subscription or gift experience for?
A Mind in Bloom membership is for you if you are looking for a new way to de-stress and you'd like to learn to grow and arrange flowers. You find it hard to just sit and do nothing, which is why the activities included in a Mind in Bloom Box have been designed specifically to encourage you to unwind whilst doing a mindful activity to ensure that you feel the relaxation benefits of gardening and floristry.
What is included in the Mind in Bloom Box subscription/ gift experience?
A monthly box containing:
- A mindful gardening project (sent on the 4th of each month) to be grown during the month you receive it.
- Any additional supplies you need to grow your plants.
- Instruction card.
- Access to mindful gardening and floristry videos and resources.
- 1 x gift card and envelope either to be sent to the purchaser for gifting, or to be included in the first box (gift experiences only)
How much time will I need to spend on the activities?
The initial activity will take about 15-20 minutes. Depending on the activity there may be some further watering or other mindful gardening activity involved.
This will all be detailed on the instruction card.
What mindful gardening activities are included in my monthly box?
I can’t reveal exactly what is coming up as I like to keep it a surprise for members but some examples of past activities are ‘Mindful annual seed sowing’ and ‘Mindful spring bulb planting’. Some of the activities don’t show their mindful element until they flower, such as scented sweet peas or tall spires of delphiniums soaring up out of the border. All of the activities however, encourage you to be present in the moment to allow you to de-stress and enhance your wellbeing. You can watch some examples of mindful gardening activities on Adventures with Flowers TV.
How are you different to other gardening and floristry subscriptions boxes?
The majority of other gardening subscription boxes contain either seeds, bulbs, plants and instructions on how to grow them. Other floristry subscription boxes provide you with the cut flowers and some brief instructions on how to arrange them. A Mind in Bloom Box subscription not only teaches you how to grow the flowers, but how to condition them for maximum vase life, how to arrange them and how to do all of this mindfully so you get maximum relaxation benefit.
