Itching to get in the garden? You're in luck. Amazon's new plant store makes it easier than ever to buy all of your gardening essentials.

Say goodbye to spending the day at a nursery picking out plants. Thanks to Amazon's new plants store, you can get shrubs, annuals, perennials, succulents, and more delivered straight to your door.

The retail giant lets you shop by brand, which includes well-known favorites such as Proven Winners, Brussel's Bonsai, and Costa Farms. And a collection of plant buying tips helps gardening novices determine the best size and species for their yard. Many of the plants are also eligible for Amazon Prime, so many lucky members will see their shipment in just two days.

Before loading up your shopping cart, we recommend checking the weather. Many of the plants thrive in warm temperatures, so they won't survive if shipped in extreme cold. Wait for a warm streak and avoid leaving plants out on the porch for too long.

If you're ready to get started, don't bother combing through every page of the plant store. We've done the heavy-lifting for you and found the best nine plants to buy. From shrubbery to houseplants, these picks are guaranteed to get your green thumb going.
