Ordering from Surreal Succulents

Succulents Boxed up for shipping

We post orders worldwide. If you are outside the UK, we can obtain phytosanitary certification for export. This shows that our plants are healthy and safe to be shipped to your country. The option to purchase a Phyto certificate is available at checkout.

We add freshly grown plants to our website every two weeks, so it’s always worth checking to see if your favourite succulents are in stock. Consider subscribing to our mailing list at the bottom of this page so you don’t miss out on any lovely plants. After you place an order, you will receive a confirmation email. You will also receive a tracking number upon despatch.

The Surreal Succulents team will hand-pick your plants, choosing the largest plants available for your order. The plants are then de-soiled, as we have found this the best way of shipping succulents. Shipping bare roots also allows us to inspect the plant’s roots.

A label is printed for your plant, which is carefully wrapped in soft tissue paper. The label is then attached to the outside of the tissue paper, making it easy to identify which plant is which. The plants are then placed in a padded box and sent to you.

Once you receive your order, pot your succulents and give them a little water. A care note in the box will help you.

On arrival, your plants have been in a dark box for a few days (even longer for international orders). We advise potting your succulents up in a 9cm pot and placing them in a shaded place for 7 to 10 days.

Once they have settled, they can be moved to any place you choose.

  7. Received a beautiful specimen of Aeonium Mardi Gras, today, to accompany my growing collection of Echeveria and Aeoniums that I’ve purchased through Surreal Succulents. I can thoroughly recommend Surreal Succulents, as all my plants have arrived healthy, in wonderful condition and they’ve always been most helpful.

    I’ll be back!
