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.

Boxes will begin to be shipped out starting on the 1st of every month. The cut off date is the 31st of any given month. So if you subscribe on the 2nd say of March having just missed the cut off your first box will be shipped out on April 1st. From that point on you will be billed once a month on the 2nd and receive a Seed Bank Box once a month. You will never be billed for a box you don't receive.

I love that they give you a lot information on a card about the seeds. I going to enjoy planting them.
This is my favorite box! I love it! You get a great amount of seeds and I love the info cards.
Enjoying this box.
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...
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.
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
For the cost, need more variety. Would like to see half flowers and half vegetables.
This Seed Bank is a wonderful introduction to new vegetables I have never heard of or tried before. Each seed packet comes with a colored card explaining each one. I truly enjoy some mystery in my garden. I recommend this subscription
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.
VERY NICE AND INTERESTING MIX! WAS GREAT TO RECEIVE SUCH AN ARRAY OF SEEDS NOT SEEN AT YOUR BIG BOX STORES!
CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT BOX!
