How does Window Fleur work?
Just sign up and we’ll deliver your ready-planted window box straight to your door. Then just pop the box on your window sill, extend the arms ‘til it fits snugly. Watch your mini-garden grow, all season long. Each season, we’ll deliver a ready-planted refill straight to your door. You can cancel whenever you like.
Will I be able to see what refills are coming up?
You will be able to see which refills you have ordered on your account page. Our homepage features a preview of the boxes available for the current season.
Will I be able to skip deliveries?
You will not be able to skip deliveries. Should you want to cancel your delivery and your subscription please log into your account page.
What should I do with my used refill?
Our refills are fully biodegradable. They’re made from cardboard. This means it can be easily disposed of with food waste, garden compost or in green council recycling bins.
What are your seasons?
We define seasons as:
Winter - 1st December to last day of February
Spring - 1st March to last day of May
Summer - 1st June to last day of August
Autumn - 1st September to last day of November
What if I order near the end of a season?
For first time orderers, to ensure you get the most from your plants we switch between seasons 2 weeks before the end of each seasonal window. This is so you don't receive your next season's refills too close to your first delivery. This means if you order right at the end of a season, you might have a slight wait before your delivery, but we'll email you to give you the heads up if this is the case.

Plants and Boxes Questions
What size window frame does this fit?
Our boxes are like no other. They fit window sills ranging from 90cm to 130cm with a minimum depth of 16cm. The extendable arms (like clamps) fix it securely to your window sill. Simply pop the box in place, twist the arms to secure it to the window frame, and sit back and watch your flowers grow.
Can I use the box without the extendable arms?
Yes you can, this reduces the box size to 84cm. We recommend only doing this on ground floor windows, or ensuring the box is safely secured.
What type of windows do they fit?
Our boxes fit to window sill that has a width of 90cm to 130cm and a depth of 16cm, this allows the box to sit safely without any fear of it falling off.
Do you have different sizes?
We currently only offer one size of window box which is 90cm in length, but our box is like no other. Its extendable arms allow it to fit on any window sill ranging from 90cm to 130cm.
What should I do if one of my plants has died?
We’re sorry to hear your plant has died, this could be down to a variety of factors. Please do get in touch with us at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to talk you through our solutions.
Do you sell your boxes without subscription?
We don’t currently offer this option.
Why has my refill gone all mushy?
Your refill is made from cardboard and is fully biodegradable. It sounds like your refill has started to decompose. This could be due to abnormal rainfall for the season, or that its natural lifespan has come to an end. Just scoop it out and place in your food waste bin, garden compost, or in green council recycling bins. And get excited for your new plant refill to arrive.
How long will the plants last?
Given the right care and watering your plants will last for 3 months. Please visit our Instagram WindowFleur to find handy tips and advice on how to get the best from your plants. If you’ve given your plants enough love and attention and they are still falling short, please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you install for me?
The installation process is so easy, anyone could do it. We currently don’t offer installation help for subscriptions fewer than 5 boxes.
Will I need any additional equipment to install my window box?
Your box comes with a little spanner, to aid you when extending and tightening the arms.
How do I install safely?
To install your box safely please follow these easy steps:
If you’re installing your window box on the first floor or higher, make sure there are no passers-by or vehicles below. Avoid installing it in strong winds too.
Your clever window box comes with arms (like clamps) to fix it securely to your window sill. Extend the arms, then pop the box on your window sill. Tighten the arms until the box fits snugly and securely to the window frame. Give it a little wobble to check it’s as tight as can be. Sorry to get all serious, but legally we need to be clear that secure installation and maintenance is your responsibility.
They’re all planted and ready to grow. All you need to do is water them every other day in summer (half a mug per plant) or every 2-3 days in winter.
