Bloomscape

Just in time for spring, Bloomscape—one of our picks for best online houseplant shopping—is launching Bloom Kits, its first outdoor plant collections meant to brighten your porch, patio, or balcony.

With Bloom Kits, Bloomscape says they can turn anyone into a gardener, thanks to tips and tricks and years of research shared by their very own Plant Mom. The outdoor kits include Accent Kits (single-plant variety), Combination Kits (three varieties), and a wide selection of single blooms that are made for pots and hanging containers.

We rounded up all the details of each Bloom Kits collection.
