The Starter Garden: Seed-of-the-Month Clubs

March 6, 2017

Trend alert: seed-of-the-month clubs. It’s an appealing idea, both for beginning gardeners and old hands. We’ve rounded up five subscription services for gardening that will ship care packages of seeds (and in some cases garden tools and accessories, as well) by mail:

Grow Journey

A Grow Journey Seeds Subscription costs from \$8.4\2 to \$\14.99 per month depending on the size of your garden and whether you pre-pay for a year&#8\2\17;s seeds.

For edible gardeners, each month Grow Journey will send a selection of from three to five varieties of seasonal seeds, depending on the size of your garden. Suitable for growing on a balcony or in a backyard plot, options range from bok choy to tomatoes to peppers.

PlowBox

A PlowBox subscription is $45 per quarter or $150 per year if you pre-pay.

Mailed four times a year, each quarterly PloxBox has 10 varieties of organic seeds, planting instructions, and “at least one ‘goodie’ from our selection of unique, useful products,” says Seattle Seed Co.

Jade Canopy

Jade Canopy’s box-of-the-month comes with a selection of seeds and garden tools and accessories, which vary from clippers to plant markers to gloves.

Allotinabox

A one-year subscription to Allotinabox is £59.99.
From UK-based Allotinabox, quarterly boxes include seasonal seeds and gardeners’ supplies such as jute twine, plant tags, and homemade soap.

Honey Farm

Customized for your climate, Honey Farms’ monthly Seed Bombs include two bags with a total of 10 bombs. “Each seed ball contains a specific perennial flower seed encased in compost and clay. These seeds can be sown anytime of year and will maximize feeding of bees and butterflies for years to come,” notes Honey Farms.
