FAQ

What is PlowBox?

PlowBox is a quarterly (seasonal) organic seed club.  We send out seeds and gifts to our members every 3 months that are appropriate for their climate.

What's the difference between PlowBox and PlowBox Green?

PlowBox is a quarterly seed club for mostly outdoor growing.  PlowBox Green is a monthly microgreens seed club for indoor growing. Microgreens are eaten 7-14 days after planted, so you never have a mature plant.  PlowBoxes have home & garden related gifts in each box.  PlowBox Green is only seeds and soil for a constant supply of fresh greens.

How does it work?

PlowBox: You tell us what your weather is like, and we send you seeds to plant in your garden. You also receive fun garden and food-related gifts to compliment your fresh vegetables and herbs.  PlowBox Green: You just choose mild or spicy (or blended) and we send you seeds and soil every month so you never run out of greens.

How are the boxes priced?

With both boxes you can choose to pay each time a box is sent, or subscribe to multiple boxes at one time.  You can save a lot by subscribing to a whole year.  We also have coupons available frequently on our social media pages.  You can always save 20% of your first box with code "TRYPLOWBOX"

When will my boxes arrive?

PlowBox (original) arrives in Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.  They ship each 3 months from when you subscribed, so not all boxes arrive to all subscribers in the same month.  You must subscribe before each season's final cutoff date to receive the upcoming box, otherwise you will receive the next season's box.  Spring boxes ship January-March, Summer boxes ship April-June, Fall boxes ship July-September, and Winter boxes ship October-December.

If you want to make an adjustment to when your boxes ship, we can easily help you with that.  Each person's micro-climate is unique, and when you want your box to arrive is a personal decision.

If you are trying to get a Winter box before Christmas, it's important you subscribe before the end of November.  If you do miss that cutoff, we still have a welcome card that you can give your recipient so they can get excited about their upcoming box.  We can try to accommodate special requests, but often do not have the supplies necessary for late shipments. PlowBox Green arrives every month.

Can I get a box right away?

We plan each box carefully for each climate, based on the number of current subscribers.  Unfortunately we don't have extra boxes outside of our normal shipping schedule.  If you are giving PlowBox as a gift (and we recommend you do), we can send you a beautiful, full-color welcome card by PDF in case you are on a deadline or want to hand them something in person before their first box arrives.
