That was the Evrgreen.de page
"Plant yourself happy. Order plants from the comfort of your own home.” With these words, the founders, Jan Nieling and Philip Ehlers, advertise their company EVRGREEN. Sell houseplants in Hydroponics online including operating instructions. This is what the company stands for.
But nobody has been available since mid-October 2018. Evrgreen is now offline. So far you have searched in vain for an official statement, but we can say: the startup EVRGREEN no longer exists. First of all, we will introduce you to the company and where you might already know it from.
Jan Nieling and Philip Ehlers both grew up on the outskirts of town and spent a lot of time in nature. After moving to the city, the two lacked greenery and felt the need to set up houseplants. Unfortunately, both of them were very busy and their houseplants were stunted.
Philip Ehlers woke up one morning in October 2012 and looked at his dried up Ikea palm tree. He called his friend Jan Nieling and explained his problem to him. Jan said he hadn't had any plants in his apartment for 3 years and that's when the two of them got the idea! In 2013 they founded an online shop with indoor plants including care tips.
Evrgreen.de was a start-up company that sold and marketed indoor plants online. They focused on plants that aren't even available at hardware stores.
You placed particular value on individual and unusual products. An all-round carefree package was also offered. This contained tips for care and watering by email, as well as customer service that gives the buyer the opportunity to get advice before, during and after the purchase.
The plants were sent directly from nurseries or nurseries. This means that the plants were of high quality and were professionally cared for up until they were shipped.
At Evrgreen, each plant had its own name and a little story about them so customers have a connection to the plant. More than 1200 products were available in the online shop and many of them were developed with designers from Berlin. But now www evrgreen de is offline.
Famous from "The Lion's Den"
In 2016, Jan and Philip visited the start-up show "Die Höhle der Löwen" Season 3 and presented their company EVRGREEN. This TV show is mostly about "Start Ups" looking for investors for their company. So you present your company to a jury of investors and one of these jury members can decide in favor of the investment or not.
Unfortunately, Jan and Philip could not convince anyone for their company in the episode of "Die Höhle der Löwen". Why could that have been? Jury member Frank Thelen said the company and products could easily be copied.
Carsten Maschmeyer was of the opinion that there was a lack of passion for plants and also the competence in plants. He thought even his gardening intern would have a better idea.
After their performance, Jan and Philip said that they had been dealing with plants for years and didn't need to be gardeners to do that. The two have worked together with many cooperation partners who have also helped them with expert knowledge.
Now Evrgreen is offline and there is still no official statement from the founders Jan and Philip.
