Are you familiar with the joy of “unboxing”? It’s the feeling you get when a new and highly-anticipated box arrives on your doorstep, and you unpack it to find out what’s inside. The subscription box craze gives everyone the chance to experience the fun of unboxing, with regular deliveries of new items you love. Plant and gardening subscription boxes are a unique way to learn more about gardening or give a special gift to a gardener in your life.
How Does a Gardening Subscription Box Work?
Plant subscription boxes are sent out on a regular basis, usually monthly. Once you sign up, you keep receiving new boxes until you cancel your subscription. Some services allow you to skip a box or suspend your subscription for a time, and a few even allow you to return boxes you don’t like. Here are some tips for getting the most out of gardening subscription boxes.
- Save money by paying for several months at a time. Most services offer a discount when you pay quarterly or annually. If you know you love the box, these savings can be worth the lump sum up front.
- Know the cancellation policy. All the boxes listed here allow you to cancel, but some may not refund your money if you paid for months ahead. They also usually require you to cancel by a certain time of the month to avoid receiving the next box. Be sure you fully understand how to end your subscription before signing up.
- Look for deals. Many services offer deals like your first box at a free or discounted price. Sites like CrateJoy offer special sales and deals that may not be available directly on the service’s website, so it pays to shop around a little first.
