Pot Sizing:

fits our range of 22cm plant pots

With luscious long leaves in rich green tones, this plant stands tall, making a real statement. Unlike other Ficus varities, the Amstel King isn't fussy about being moved about and won't shed its leaves as a result - ideal if you like redecorating!

Make sure you give this tree the royal treatment as it is also called the 'Ficus Alii' - “Alii” means 'king' in Hawaii, where this plant was first grown commercially.

The Amstel King isn't a fan of the cold and appreciates a misting every now and then, too. During growing season, feel free to feed him with a small amount of a fertiliser a couple times a month. On the whole, this is a very easy-to-care for plant and will be forgiving of some occasional neglect.

Jo's Top Tip
Feel free to give your Amstel King a trim when he needs it, just make sure you wear gloves when doing so as it can leak a milky sap which can be an irritant.

      Our Packaging

      ♻️95% of our packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable (and we’re working hard on that last 5%). 

      • All our cardboard boxes are FSC certified.
      • The peanuts (those squishy looking things 🥜which protect your precious plants) are starch based. Pop them in your sink and cover in water and watch them disappear in seconds. It's magic ~ honest ✨ 
      • We wrap the base of your plant in a compostable bag to prevent loose soil.
      • We pop your care card and gift message in a protective sleeve too, it might look like cello but it's not! It's made in Britain and is both compostable and bio-degradable.
      • Your pots are wrapped in paper cushioning, it's an alternative to bubble wrap. It's both recyclable, biodegradable and compostable.
      • Compostable packaging ~ the lowdown: Small amounts of compostable packaging can be placed in your food waste bins (depending on your council), so both our compostable bags and sleeve could go in there ✅. Alternatively look for a shared compost heap in your area as your local recycling centres are not set-up for compostable waste (currently). Compostable materials leave no toxic substances or pollutants in the soil when they break down. In fact, the compost produced can be used in the same way as soil or plant fertiliser. There is a difference between biodegradable and compostable. Biodegradable simply means a material breaks down into the ground. Compostable materials also break down and far quicker too, but they add nutrients to the soil too, which enriches it. 🌱🌱🌱 

        Returns

        If you'd like to return a living item, let the team know within 7 days by emailing hello@beardsanddaisies.co.uk or live chat if online. Please attach a photo of the faulty or damaged plant. Other items can be returned for a refund within 30 days as long as they're unused and in re-saleable condition.

        In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

        Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

        If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

        It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

        Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
