Hey Mama ♡

Hey Mama ♡

Hey Mama, Mammy, Mom... Maaa!

We love them, admire them, learn from them, appreciate them, and we owe them so much.

If you're looking for a pressie to treat someone this Mother's Day we can deliver to her door, or you can collect from us on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (or other days by appointment).

Use the calendar at checkout to choose your preferred delivery day, and orders will arrive on or one day prior to your chosen date. 

If you have your heart set on a particular plant, we advice ordering early as some items do sell out fast. 

Our deliveries are based on weight, but the typical cost is €8.50. 

Orders in Dublin are hand delivered.  Outside of Dublin we ship express. 

Until the end of March, we're also adding a botanical print t-shirt (worth €30) to every order over €110, to say thank you for your support over the last year. 

Here are some special gifts we adore for the floor...

 Philodendron Melanochrysum houseplant gift Mothers day ideas plant flowers

This is a special one for someone who loves houseplants, maybe they have a good few already and would appreciate something a little more unusual, rare and extra special. Pictured above - Philodendron Melanochrysum in a Garry pot. Or, if you want to kick it up a notch, pair this plant with a Leanne pot. Swoon.


A perfect duo, pictured above is a parlour palm and a ZZ plant in small and larger sized Mary pots. A beautiful shelfie if we do say so.

(Side note, but for celebration dates like Mother's Day, sometimes we opt to deliver some orders the day before. We find that if all orders are crammed into Mother's Day itself, then some poor mammy might not get her gift until 6 or 7pm. So we think it can be nice to have them arrive the afternoon or evening prior to Mother's Day, so no one thinks they've been forgotten). 

If you ever need a hand picking out a suitable gift, we're here to help. Drop us a line hello@hopelessbotanics.ie
