Ahh, spring—and with the season comes the urge to plant a garden and grow pretty things to brighten our homes and our spirits. But if social distancing is making you hesitant about going to a garden center to pick out your plants in person, we hear you. To that end, we culled a list of ones doing a delivery or touchless curbside pickup, making it simple to get your supplies while staying at home. As Audrey Hepburn once said, “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”—and we couldn’t agree with her more right now.
