Because there’s never been a better time to start a vegetable garden.

It's official: the homegrown vegetable garden is making a major comeback this spring. With many of us spending more time at home and grocery shopping requiring extra precautions, many Americans are starting their own vegetable gardens, some for the very first time. According to Jack Whettam, sales and marketing manager at Hudson Valley Seed Co, orders have increased "by orders of magnitude" this year, and other seed companies report similar spikes in sales.

While many seed companies experienced shipping delays or had to take a short break to catch up on shipments earlier this April, most are currently back to accepting new orders. Translation: now is a great time to order and start planting all of those tomato, zucchini, and eggplant seeds. Buy vegetable seeds online at the sources below, then consult our month-by-month guide to learn what to plant when.

Seeds are organized into vegetables, herbs, and flowers. You can also get collections suitable for different uses, such as making herbal teas or growing Mediterranean ingredients, although there aren’t a lot of these options. The varieties of seeds are more than some retailers but still don’t provide a lot of options within each type of vegetable, herb, or flower. The Gardening Center portion of the website is worth mentioning, as it has both articles and videos to help you make the most of your garden.
