Hi There! I’m Saffron. With over 500 indoor plants, I’ve found my passion in life and I want to share that happiness with as many people as possible.

I have two human babies (#rosetheassistantgardener and #augusttheassistantgardener ) and around 500 plant babies – but who really knows? I gave up counting a long time ago.

I could talk about plants all day long! I love learning about them and it’s probably one of the only things I’m truly passionate about. Watching a leaf unfurl, trying to propagate something, or even recently cross-pollinating species, there’s always something new to learn or observe.

I’ve also made so many friends in this space and absolutely love the plant community. Which is one of the reasons why I started #saffronsgardenplantclub

With a passion for expanding that community, I started Saffron’s Garden Plant Club – a subscription-based service that surprises members with a new plant and plant-related gift each month.

South Africa is home to many plant lovers and entrepreneurs and I’m always happy to make new friends, if you have any questions or just want to reach out, I’d love to hear from you.

Classic & Collectors Plant Club Boxes:

Plant Club is a collection of epic subscription services that deliver a surprise plant and plant-related gift to your door each month! Themes, teasers and community are what it’s all about.

Botanical Box



When I asked Saffron if I could join the Collector’s box for the month of December only, she said yes! I wanted to give myself a Xmas gift and I am so happy to have chosen her plant club because I got the best, biggest, and rarest surprise in there!! I love that the boxes incorporate plant accessories from local vendors and it also includes care/learning cards with plant info. Saffron’s plant club is great because you can join short and long term…but whatever you decide, just join! You’ll love the surprise 💚

Hi, I’m Sam – a botanist in training and plant mom! I’ve been lucky enough to be part of the Plant Club for over a year, and it changed my life. Not only do you get a plant every month like clockwork, but it comes packed with info and plant-related goodies that will turn even the most hesitant gardener into a green-fingered queen.

I joined the Saffron’s Garden Club about a year ago, and I never get tired of receiving a new plant baby every month. This club has exposed me to a variety of unique and beautiful plants. On top of the excitement of being able to fill my house with plants, the local crafts that come with the package are a treat. Can’t wait for next month!

For over a year I have looked forward each month to the arrival of a very special plant delivery: Saffron’s Garden Plant Club classic subscription box. I have particularly enjoyed receiving plants that I would never have bought at a nursery, and then being surprised at how much joy they bring me. I have also enjoyed getting to know some awesome local brands. The SA plant community is a very welcoming place, and a lot of that is due to Saffron and the space she has created online for lovers of plants to share their plant triumphs and struggles.

An incredible gift (to yourself or someone special) that sparks huge joy!

I received a 12-month subscription to Saffron’s Plant Club from a friend and it’s honestly been the best gift ever! A guaranteed highlight of every month, it’s so exciting to unwrap your surprise plant, learn all about it and how to care for it – my favourite benefit being all the plant knowledge
