Our minigardens with seasonal plants are available in specific timeframes. Evergreen plants are, however, available all year round. If your order is available at the time of your purchase, your order will be delivered within 3-5 business days.
The 9-plant pot is 50cm (L) x 50cm (W) x 20cm (H), the table is 50cm (H), and the 9-plant pot on top of the table is 70cm (H).
The innovative water tank (patent pending) leads to the plants absorbing the water through the roots via the tank and not needing to be watered individually. The long pot gives the roots enough room to develop and grow strong and bear fruit. If it doesn't rain for a while, all you need to do is water the Greenling centrally. Removing the dried-out flowers with scissors from time to time when they have bloomed off is advisable. You can always contact our support if you have questions about your Greenling or individual plants.
The plants all come from local plant nurseries in Germany. You can leave the pre-selection of suitable varieties and species to the professional with a clear conscience. That way, you always get optimal results. Of course, you can also replace individual plants. In the webshop, we offer 3, 6, or 9 plants. If you need a different number, please e-mail feedback@greenling.de; we will gladly take care of it!
Our plants are grown in two plant nurseries in Würzburg (family business Rothenhöfer and the training nursery of Caritas). The table frame is made of metal in a family business near Milan and is corrosion-resistant. The table top is made of high-quality safety glass in Kaufbeuren.

The Bigfoot Greenling plant pot is made in Munich from recyclable plastic. The next generation, Kobold, is made of 100% recycled plastic. We have been looking at alternative materials for a long time and are also pursuing some alternatives. However, many of the materials currently available, e.g., made from vegetable oil, are not (yet) viable alternatives. For example, the current situation shows how critical the production of commodities from food is. In addition, the materials do not have the properties we are looking for: specifically suitable for outdoor use, dimensionally and heat resistant, and frost and UV resistant.
Sure, in principle, you can continue to use the inner pots (or buy new ones) when a Greenling plant needs to be replaced and plant them yourself - but we are sure - our professional gardeners give everything for our plant quality that you can see and smell it. So falling in love with our plants is much easier!
For you, it is! Because until the robust and easy-to-care-for minigarden arrives at your home, a lot of know-how has gone into it.

The head gardener and his staff at the Würzburg Botanical Center tested various plants for months to withstand a wide range of conditions (sun, partial shade, shade).

Plant combinations were tried, discarded, and tried again until they were perfect. Plants were shipped across Germany on a test basis to ensure the logistics fit. Industrial designers fiddled with the hardware details. And we don't stop there... We've developed accessories like wheels and plan to offer more features like a watering app in the future.
Greenling GmbH was founded in 2021 by garden and plant enthusiasts who felt the need for nature at home in the city, especially during the pandemic and lockdown. It quickly became apparent that a solution was needed that would allow even the inexperienced gardeners to experience perfect plants on the balcony or terrace without prior knowledge.
Sustainability plays an essential role in all our decision and is embedded in Greenling's DNA - even from the very beginning:

Our plants are selected and grown by local quality growers in Germany. There are no long transport routes with a corresponding CO2 footprint or environmentally harmful preservatives or fertilizers. We do not buy plants from countries where the land is urgently needed for the local food supply.

Our Greenlings are outdoors, allowing butterflies, bees, and other insects to pollinate the flowers. In addition to providing food for insects, it is vital to butterflies, for example, by giving them space to lay their eggs and develop their caterpillars. To this end, the renaturation of arable land and the targeted fields of arable wild herbs is particularly helpful. For this purpose, we have concluded a flowering partnership as a first step, which preserves a field area in Greenling's name (www.bluehpatenschaft-muenchen.de).

In terms of production, we work with local manufacturer KVH Hartung from Krailling near Munich to make our plant pot. KVH Hartung has a recycling rate of 98 percent and produces particularly durable products. For shipping, we rely on climate-neutral shipping.
Plants in the apartment have very different requirements for a minigarden, especially in terms of plant species, light, and substrate. Our first product, Bigfoot, creates a complete a garden experience in the smallest possible space. To do this, we also wanted to invite butterflies and other friendly garden visitors to experience a moment of nature in the fresh air. However, some of our plants grow in a bright kitchen, and we will continue testing them.
Clear answer - no. Our product consists of many components, pot, table, plants, soil, fertilizer, labor, know-how, packaging, and transportation. If you buy these things together in a garden center, you end up far above our prices, without the benefits and especially the beauty of our Greenling! We have, therefore, long and carefully calculated our total cost for the ready-planted minigarden.
