FAQ - Modern Garden


We are still delivering as normal, but in light of the spread of COVID-19 we’re taking all necessary precautions to keep our customers and colleagues safe.

We’ve switched to zero contact delivery until further notice. You won’t be asked to sign for your order.

Social distancing is in force in our fulfilment centre. All staff wear gloves and other hygiene equipment and wash their hands hourly.

The extra measures in place mean it may take a little longer than usual to get your plants from our growers to you, but we’re doing everything we can to deliver your orders as quickly as possible. We really appreciate your patience and understanding.  

If you have any questions, please get in touch with our customer service team using the help button below. 

Thank you, as ever, for your support.

We have 3 sizes of pots. The small pot (for our small plants) has a diameter of 5-6 inches and is 5 inches tall. The medium pot (for our medium plants) has a diameter of 7-8 inches and is 7 inches tall. The large pot (for our large and sometimes extra-large plants) has a diameter of 10-12 inches and is 10.25 inches tall.

All Modern Garden plants are fully grown as in the picture, however, each plant is unique so there will be variations in color, shape, etc. Your plant will arrive healthy and undamaged, pre-potted in one of our Modern planter of your choosing.

All live plants and pottery will have variations in color, texture, finish, and size. While we make every effort to display our pots and plants as accurate as possible, there may be subtle differences from what is displayed online.

Our lines of ORION,NOVA, and SKYLAR planters are without drainage holes. If the potted plant you select does not have a drainage hole, rest assured knowing our team has taken extra precautions to make sure that your plant is potted properly with a generous layer of lava rocks before the potting mix, to aid in proper water management and help your plant thrive. Lava rocks allow excess water to pool at the bottom of the planter but away from your plant’s roots, thus reducing the risk of root rot.

Tip: when watering your plant, add no more than 1/3 of the planter’s volume in water, to avoid overwatering. Best practice is to feel the potting mix a few inches down first, and only water if the mix is dry.
