Garden in a Box

Fresh veggie and flower starts, ready to go in the ground this Spring!

All 2021 boxes have been sold. We'll open up the 2022 season in January!

Want to get in on the gardening craze but don't know where to start? Can't find any seeds? Prefer unusual flowers and vegetables, but only want one or two?

 

We can help with that! We offer two large (30 plants) and two small (16 plants) Garden in a Box packages: Veggie Garden in a Box, Bouquet in a Box, Salsa in a Box, and Sauce in a Box. The trays have 30 or 16 healthy, sustainably-grown plant starts, fully hardened-off and ready to put in your prepared bed! Each box comes with with planting, care and feeding, and harvesting of your plants, along with plastic label tags. 

How Does it Work?

  • Order your box(es) in advance at the links below.

  • We'll notify of a pick-up/delivery time about two weeks before the plants are ready to go home. We'll email you some tips on preparing your garden bed, and what supplies you'll want to have on hand.

  • Pick up your flat of plants at the farm, or we can deliver to your door for a small additional fee. Sorry, we can't ship these plants; they're too delicate to survive the trip. We WILL make a delivery trip to a central location in Northern Virginia and also to suburban Maryland, on a weekend in May. Just choose the general pickup area when you place your order.

Important note: The plant list below is a guide. The actual plants you will receive MAY vary, depending on germination and growth rates of the plants we've picked out. There may also be differences between individual flats.
