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!
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).

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'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!
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.
