Frequently asked questions
How big does my planter need to be?
The planter should be at least 14” in diameter, and ideally no more than 16” in diameter.
How do I care for my plants?
Plant the combinations the day you receive them, and give the plants a thorough watering. When the top inch of soil feels dry or the plants begin to wilt, water them again. Feed the plants with Miracle-Gro® plant food after about 4 weeks. Note that plant care will vary from shipment to shipment.
Do I need soil for the planter?
Depending on the planter you use, you may need to fill it with enough potting soil so your new plants sit comfortably just beneath the rim. We recommend using Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix.
How do I plant my arrangements?
The plants arrive already arranged, in a tray with soil. Press the tray into the soil at the top of the planter to make an indentation. Lift out and recycle the plastic tray and nestle the arrangement into the planter. Repeat with the other tray and planter. Water the plants as directed.
If my plants arrive and they look a little tired after their trip, what should I do?
We recommend that you take a photo, then plant and water them as directed. Let them get used to their new surroundings for 5 days. If they don’t perk up, take another photo and get in touch with us. We’ll make sure you’re happy.
How do I know how much to water my plant?
Once the arrangements are in your planter, soak them with water. Soak them again when any of the plants begin to wilt or when the soil feels dry. Poking your finger one inch into the soil in a few places around the plants will help you know when it’s time.
What comes with a Knock! Knock! box?
We provide two plant trays curated by our horti-futurists. Please note that your plants will not ship at full size. This allows for the plants reach to your door safely and ready to flourish.
You will need two planters 14-16” in diameter, potting mix to plant the trays, and plant food to keep your plants strong. We recommend Miracle Gro® Potting Mix and Miracle Gro® Plant Food for the best results.
