When your space lacks a certain “je ne sais quoi,”
easy-care houseplants and indoor trees always fit the bill: They add life to any room, purify the air and boost your mood. When shopping for a greenery upgrade, there’s a lot to consider like light conditions, care level and pot size — plus, ordering online brings the added stress that your plant won’t arrive well-packaged or healthy. To help you narrow down your options, we sought out to find the best places to buy plants online in 2023.
To find out which suppliers have truly honed the art of growing, packing and shipping plants, we ordered houseplants from some of the most popular places you can buy plants online, including superstores like Amazon, florists such as UrbanStems and houseplant-focused companies like The Sill and Bloomscape. To make our top picks, we considered how easy it is to navigate the site, the variety of plants and price points available, how plants are packaged and the appearance of each plant when it arrived (for those that were personally tested).
Of course, we found pros and cons for each site. While some retailers offer free shipping, helpful plant care instructions and low prices, others sell rare specimens and trendy planters. All in all, these online plant delivery services make it easy to order live plants — with some being best for houseplants, outdoor greenery, succulents, air plants, growing kits and garden herbs. Find your favorite and get ready to flex your green thumb.
