Instead of suppressing our dirt-dwelling flowery underlings, Grassi's has empowered them for more than 30 years through beautiful floral arrangements customizable to customers' wishes. Grassi's green thumbs offer floral arrangements in traditional, European, French country garden, and Oriental styles. Although this Groupon is good for in-store purchases only, you can take a look online at what Grassi's offers, including its seasonal bouquet of orange spray roses and a bright gerbera daisy with freesia and eucalyptus ($44). For a super-late (or super-early) Valentine's Day gift, opt for two dozen roses ($144.95). If you love oranges but hate that they're never available in flower form, choose the Citrus Sensation bouquet ($79.95) to quench your thirst for sweet-scented aromas. A bevy of other buds and blossoms are available at both Grassi's locations, so stop in for an eyeful of the efflorescence on display.
After opening their doors in 1986, the backyard beautifiers at Rosedale Gardens have continued to stock their full-service nursery with backyard essentials to keep homes lively year-round. The sprawling, 5-acre-plus campus boasts inspirational lawn arrangements and a vast inventory of accessories to help to foster budding green thumbs. Along with a panoply of blooming buds, the expansive inventory includes garden structures, ground coverings, and aquatic additions to help to realize the dreams of fish that always wanted to become garden gnomes. Skillfully shaped shrubbery inspires patrons to awaken their inner Scissorhands, and a range of bare-root trees stands as sanctuary for backyard birds. Upon leaving the nursery, each plant promises to be without disease or insects and totes along a one-year guarantee, which issues replacements for any flora that fails despite proper care.
Each spring for almost 30 years, 30,000 blooming bulbs have dressed Windmill Gardens’ namesake structure in a bright and flowing floral skirt, attracting foliage fanciers who cart home petaled loot in individual pots or flats to decorate their own backyards. Stroll the foliage-festooned grounds to select a dozen greens for your kit—you’ll get six pony packs with three to six plants, each 2 to 5 inches tall (a $1.99 value each) and six individually potted 4-inch plants (a $3.99 value each). Choose from hundreds of annuals to fill your flower garden, such as impatiens and geraniums, or opt to stock up on peppers, chives, tomatoes, and other edibles. After checkout, linger on location to take advantage of Windmill Gardens’ other amenities, including a bistro, a salon spa, and a loose-leaf tea shop.
In March 1964, Dr. Milton Walker began his tour of England with one mission: to send cuttings from public and private British gardens back to his native America. Though he was enchanted by several flowers, he knew that none of these cuttings could be imported directly to the United States. So he had them sent through Canada. Over the next several years, staff from the University of British Columbia filtered through these samples, sending one of each plant on to the United States—and to their permanent home—at the Rhododendron Species Foundation. Today, this non-profit organization conserves 700 of the more-than 1,000 species of rhododendrons found around the world and the two species found inside the earth's molten core.
More than 10 botanical gardens house these brilliant seasonal blooms and their natural companionate flora. Guided and self-guided tours usher visitors down pathways where colorful plantings abound in gardens dedicated to alpine flowers, azaleas, a magnolia grove, and a tranquil pond filled with predatory cattails. In addition to flowers, these gardens also host seasonal events such as special plant sales and staff lectures, as well as classes on topics ranging from plant photography to gardening.
