20 Gardenista Favorites to Source on Amazon

January 3, 2018

Consider it the new general store. Sales at Amazon account for 43 cents of every dollar spent online in the U.S., according to Slice Intelligence, a Silicon Valley company that tracks e-commerce trends. It’s no wonder that many of our favorite items—including houseplants, gardening tools, tool bags, and outdoor shower kits—are available on Amazon.

We’re happy to take advantage of convenience, low prices, and prime delivery (at least until drone delivery becomes a reality; at that point we may be tempted to channel our inner Betty Draper to defend the airspace above the backyard with a BB gun). So here’s a list of 20 Gardenista favorites you can source on Amazon:

Teak Herb Planter

A Teak Wood Window Box planter measures 48 inches long and 6 inches deep; \$8\2.48.
