Amazon Just Launched a Plant Shop to Help You Cultivate Your Green Thumb
Get those green thumbs ready — Amazon is about to become your go-to gardening godsend! While various plants, including our fave low-maintenance go-to, succulents, have been available on the website for quite some time, it's about to become a top destination for plant lovers, as the online retailer has just quietly launched a spiffy new shop dedicated to ALL things plants.
In addition to succulents, the Amazon Plants Store offers up shrubs, annuals, perennials — you name it! — all conveniently grouped together in one place.
Shopping is a cinch with the ability to choose between outdoor plants for your garden and patio and those that will flourish inside your home. There are also handy tips for choosing the right pot size, as well as information about growing and blooming seasons for shrubs and perennials (which hibernate during winter and come back each spring), and seasonal annuals.
If you're looking for something *extra* special to spice up your pad, we suggest starting with the 'Great Gifts' dropdown, which features everything from adorable heart-shaped lucky bamboo ($22) to an elegantly twisted bamboo creation ($30), both of which will thrive in your living room, kitchen, or any room of your home.
Even better, all orders over $25 ship for free, and, if you have Amazon Prime, you can be doting over your brand new friend in as little as two days.
Before you pick one (or five) up, however, Amazon recommends putting your zip code into the United States Department of Agriculture's hardiness zone search to find out more about the average temperatures in your area and what zone you fall in, with the coldest ranked at a “one" and the hottest a 13. As the retailer explains, “plants perform best when grown within their hardiness zones." Duly noted.
Happy planting, y'all!
