Seed Bank Box, a monthly subscription box for the urban gardener. We send out amazing boxes of organic, non-gmo and sometime rare seeds for you to plant in your vegetable garden every month. You’ll start eating amazing foods that are infinitely better than anything you can find in the organic section of your grocery store.

I love that they give you a lot information on a card about the seeds. I going to enjoy planting them.
Enjoying this box.
I love my subscription. I may skip here and there due to other obligations but please keep in mind this is one if my top faves. I spend a lot in subscriptions and yet this is a package that I am eager to rip open.
This is my first one and I was pleasantly surprised. This maybe my favorite subscription box. I will let you know as I get to planting in my greenhouse! Thank you!
Love all the seeds they are packaged great. This is a wonderful box
Love my seeds! A good mix of types.
Fantastic variety of fun new things to plant and enjoy. Great format with cards and instructions
UPDATE: 8 days later (and after they asked me to go to my local USPS office to inquire about it - which I had already done) they responded. I have a tracking number for a replacement box. Yay!
I got this email:
I will be requesting an investigation with the USPS for possible mail theft regarding this issue. We request you kindly remove the one star comment on the Createjoy review as we are doing everything we can to resolve this issue. Seed Bank Box will be taking a full loss on this transaction and unfortunately have no control regarding mail theft,
or USPS delivery errors.
We appreciate your business
I hope they claim insurance on the package to recoup their "full loss". I tracked that box out of excitement and checked with all my neighbors and no one had their packages or mail stolen that day (we have 5 mailboxes connected in a row). There is a good chance that USPS put it in the wrong box as I ran down there to get it (again, not a neighbor's box). Unfortunately, me paying for an item that never arrives is not within my control either and they are the only ones that can claim an insurance recovery from USPS. I am glad they did the right thing and sent another one.
I LOVE the concept of this little box, but they could improve by
1: Having a telephone number to be able to call.
2: Making customer service turn...
The seeds were awesome. I just cannot afford this subscription box at this time but I will probably be renewing it at a later date when I can afford it
My wife and I have tried a few seed subscription boxes, and they tend to be on the lower cost side leading to us being content with their hit or miss type content. This was the most expensive seed box we purchased and I had high hopes for it. The curated assortment we received did not have a single product that I would have equated to being 'rare' in any way, shape or form. I wish I had put the purchase towards an order with Baker Creek.
To be fair to the seller, there were some high points to this purchase:
1) The presentation is quite nice and very well organized
2) The quantities of each seed is rather large.
This box may appeal to others, but for the cost and product description, I feel I was mislead in terms of what the quality would actually be.
