This seed of the month club has monthly plans from one month to a year, each for $20 a box. You'll get heirloom seeds delivered to your doorsteps for growing herbs, vegetables, legumes and more. The subscription starts with a short questionnaire about what kind of garden you have -- indoor, outdoor, hydroponic, low light and more -- and what kind of gardening you'd like to do. You can cancel or pause anytime (like during the offseason).
The Home Depot has a massive selection of plants to choose from and a decent seed selection, although they don't specialize in rare vegetables. The Home Depot also has loads of garden supplies including soil, gardening tools, accessories so you can knock out a lot in one delivery to kickstart your summer garden.

My Garden Box is perfect for the indoor plant-obsessed. Each shipment includes a new houseplant and planter with soil, rocks for drainage and instructions for care. This delivery service is great if you have lots of space for indoor plants and want to keep expanding your indoor greenery, or if you want to send a one-time gift to a plant lover. Plans start at around $45 per month.
If you've got plans for some serious gardening or landscaping, the plant collection at Nature Hills is a good place to start for blooming plants, potted plant options and more.

You can find fruit trees and plants here, too, including apple, citrus and stone fruit trees, along with a wide range of berry bushes.
This massive online seed store carries just about any plant or flower you can dream up and plenty that you've probably never heard of.

If you're trying to get your garden in shape, Leaf'd Box may be the easiest way to do it. My box of small veggie plants showed up on time and in healthy condition, ready to go into the soil.
The garden service will take an order for whatever it is you want to grow -- veggies, herbs, lettuce and other produce. Then the gardeners grow 'em for you up to the right size for planting and send a box four times a year with plants that thrive during that season, and in your climate. All plant subscription kits are available through the website and pricing is as follows:
Herb Garden (10 plants): $45 per season
Small Veggie (10 plants): $45 per season
