Excellent!!! I got four little baggies of seeds. Dill and spinach. With instructions on how to do care for them! Sooooo cute totally worth it, you can use one pack and save the other pack. It’s purely genius, I love the mystery of it as well I got seeds of herbs and plants o never would have even thought to buy.
My garden had gone wild thIs year and this crate gets the credit.
perfect starting kits and handwritten notes
Great idea, good customer service. Excellent, quality-tested seeds. It comes with directions on what the seeds are and how to sow them, and my sheet also had a little hand-written, personalized note: "happy planting, Dani!"
I have to discontinue for now for a few reasons, but I'd do it again when I can!
Love this box ! Very well organized and will definitely order again😊
I absolutely love this subscription box!! The seeds that come are high quality and very interesting. Would highly recommend to anyone that likes unique flowers/vegetables for their garden, well worth the $5!!
I'm honestly disappointed. When I signed up, it sounded like I would get seasonal seeds. And like they might be seeds I wouldn't have thought of purchasing. Just got my shipment. It only had tomato seeds. I could have sworn it said I would receive at least two types of seeds? Regardless, it's January and I got tomato seeds. Not even a heritage breed. Just cherry tomatoes. That is not even worth the 5$. Will be cancelling immediately
This is such a fun subscription box! I love surprises and I love gardening, so this monthly subscription box is one of the best kinds of subscription boxes. Thank you, Urban Organic Gardener!
Issue was fully resolved, thank you!
Hi Elaina - It looks like you just missed the deadline to receive our May shipment by a couple days. The deadline to join our monthly seed club is by the 4th of every month. You joined on the 7th.
It was shipped to the address listed for the subscription.
I am so sorry for any confusion about the deadline to join and receive our package.
I have emailed several times with no response. Also - I placed my order the first part of Dec and still no box.
I was so exciting to join this subscription and I am thrilled with the first month. I’m a plant addict so I can never have enough gardening goodies! Super fast shipping I also appreciate!
Such a fun variety. The germination rate wasn’t as high as I would have liked, but when they did, the plants were wonderfully productive with delicious fruits and veggies (and even some beautiful flowers).
GOOD FOR BEGINNER GARDENERS TOO

Good products, reliable delivery, friendly customer service
The seeds arrived well-packaged and with a starter pot thingy I'm afraid I can't remember the proper name for. They were the right kind of plants for my zone and the fact that I garden in containers, with a good number of seeds for planting in my pots. There were enough that I didn't consider them overpriced, either.
My yellow chard and radishes were the only seeds I've planted so far. Despite not planting according to instructions, they still produced. The chard has some huge leaves on it! I should have watered the radishes more, though. They started out beautifully, but ended up in drought condition and didn't do as well as the chard planted later after the heat stopped trying to kill me when I went outdoors.
I will be happy to rejoin the club once the evil virus stops messing with my paychecks! For now, though, I'll just be missing my monthly shipments of potential yumminess.
I'll preface this with that I have a black thumb. I literally kill everything - I even give snake plants a run for their money which are generally regarded as extremely hardly and tolerant plants.
Figured Id give these monthly seeds a try. Why not? We are in a pandemic. And, everyone now has a garden.
But my prediction was right - I still suck at gardening. I am not sure if this is because I am in Phoenix where it is 118 here or what, but everything dies.
But I like this set. For a couple bucks a month I got to try to grow things I certainly wouldn't have picked myself. Things generally grew, but ultimately died, so the seeds are good quality. Instructions are clear. Again I dont know if this is because my setup is wrong or if I'm simply cursed at gardening.
I am ultimately canceling because I'm not getting anything out of the onhtly buy, but I do think this is totally worth it to someone who has a more green thumb than myself.
I bought a 6 month subscription to this service for my wife at Christmas and overall it was a great present. The variety was good and the directions and supplies did the job. Only thing stopping this from getting 5 stars was a number of seeds didn't sprout at all, despite our best efforts. Not the end of the world, and for all I know they're better than most, but worth noting.
Some of the most helpful customer service I've come across though, so don't underestimate that.
It’s ok, just seeds and a card that describes them.
I wish I could confidently assign stars to this, but all I know is that excitedly dropped $45 for a 3 month subscription for my husband for a Christmas present...and here we are at the end of January with no delivery and no communication about it. I could have saved the $45 and disappointment by going with literally any other subscription service. Maybe the negative review will prompt a response email, answer to my posted question, or some remark here about how the issues lies with me, rather than the company’s lack of communication.
Good morning. It looks like the address you gave us is not correct or valid. The package was shipped back to us. That is why the recipient has not yet received anything. We have been trying to contact you but it's impossible to get in touch. Thank you for writing your negative review. At least now we can resolve this for you. Please get in touch with us with the correct mailing address so we may resend the package. Thank you! - UOG
I've received 2 months' worth of seeds and have enjoyed trying a variety of plants in my limited garden space. I received just the right amount of organic, non-GMO seeds to try 10 kinds of veggies, some of which I love and can't find in a store. I haven't yet planted the second batch and had mixed results with the first batch.
As a beginner, I wanted to take the research and guess work out of choosing seeds and didn't want to buy more seeds than I needed, and this service is perfect in that regard. As a beginner, I wish I'd had more basic info, especially about freezing. The UOG website wasn't so helpful in that respect, but I enjoyed reading it otherwise. Had I not been so lazy about looking elsewhere for guidance, more of my plants would still be alive. I think I'll be more successful with this batch.
Great seeds, reliable curation, friendly service!
only received one so far, no idea where second box is. disappointing.
This is a tech related issue we are working on at the moment. What happened is that you signed up for a 6 month membership - which by the way we thank you for giving us a try - but then after you received your first package you cancelled the membership. I'm assuming you did that to avoid any type of auto-renewal after 6 months then? We're not sure. But either way, you canceled the membership and the way Cratejoy handles this is by cancelling the whole membership - even though you still have 5 more months of packages. We're sorry. But we hope to work with Cratejoy to fix this for us. In the mean time, here is...
I never receive anything from this company. I get charged $45 a month for nothing. I have emailed many times for a cancellation. Still getting charged. DO NOT GET THIS BOX!
I ordered and paid for a box on March 16. It is now May 5th and I still have not received a box. It should've been sent out on April 5th, but I still haven't received it. Please send me something or return my payment. The growing season is already getting late.
Hi Laverena - We see exactly what happened. Your membership activation date was on March 16 2019. Unfortunately that is past the deadline to join each month (which is by midnight on the 4th over every month). If you order after this deadline then you would wait and receive the next months seed club shipment (which ships out on the 5th of every month). Also, we noticed that you cancelled your membership on the very same day that you joined. We want to make sure we fix any issues for you. So this is what we are doing for you ... #1 - Issuing a full refund for any recent charges since you didn't receive anything and #2 - We are...
I signed up for 6 months and only received one box. Can’t get a hold of seller.
Hi Julie - Wow, this is not what we want to have happen to you. I
am so sorry but I can see exactly why this has happened. You signed
up on March 25th but then you cancelled your membership on May 7th -
which is why you only received the 2 months worth of shipments. Can
we ask why you cancelled on May 7th if you still wanted to receive
the next 4 months worth of shipments? In the mean time rest
assured we are issuing a full refund for any remaining balance on
your account! Sorry for any and all inconveniences. - UOG
I looked forward to receiving a variety of seeds every month, it was always fun to see what I'd get. The only downside is that of the packets only contained 5 or 6 seeds so it wasn't very economical, but still fun nonetheless.
