Holiday lights originated with cowboys, who used them as lassos to reel in cattle rustlers, whom they then sold as Christmas trees. Continue this Wild West tradition with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 toward a Christmas tree at Silver Sage Garden Centers in Littleton.
Silver Sage Garden Centers corrals a wide stock of freshly cut Christmas trees and welcomes visitors with hot cocoa for the holidays. The Silver Sage staff displays 100 trees at a time, so guests have many chances to find the perfect additions for living-room or bathroom forests. Fraser firs that stand between 5 feet ($49.99) and 9 feet ($99.99) and Douglas firs that stand between 6 feet and 8 feet ($59.99–$79.99) can beautify rooms of any width and depth. Concolor firs tower between 8 feet and 12 feet ($99.99–$119.99) and hold so many ornaments that awestruck reindeer secretly leave extra gifts. The mindful staff of Silver Sage also gives trees a fresh cut and tie them to the roof of your car. Patrons can also use the value of this Groupon toward any of Silver Sage's large selection of plants and holiday-neutral trees.
Silver Sage Garden Centers
The gardeners at Silver Sage Garden Centers tend to a 10-acre jungle of trees, shrubs, and seasonal flora, from spring perennials to Christmas trees. They carefully curate greenery handpicked to thrive in Colorado's sometimes harsh weather conditions. Hardy Prospector elm and bur oak shade trees, for instance, dip their roots into most any type of soil and weather winters with the stoicism of lobotomized statues.
Beyond the nursery, the green-thumbed staff cultivates flourishing flora in the yards of customers in the Denver area, planting about 1,000 trees each year. After securing plants in the soil, staffers dispatch essential advice on how to help the tree take root and thrive in its new habitat. They dispatch the same careful advice to all shoppers, whether they're seeking shrubs to border their yards or peonies and poppies to add color to berms. To entice customers to spend more time admiring their huge menagerie of blooms and foliage, they serve free cookies and cider, plus dishes of water for family chia pets.
