For more than 65 years, this bastion of blossoms has promoted indoor pollination with colorful flowers in a wide array of artfully arranged bouquets. The Burst of Autumn bouquet ($42.50) showcases a clear glass vase festooned with asiatic lilies, chrysanthemums, and roses in shades of clementine and yellow, with the vessel dressed for sweater weather in an orange satin ribbon. Patrons can gift six red roses ($39.95) to a significant other for Valentine’s Day, or befuddle a parking-meter cop after a ticketing spree. Shoppers can cultivate their lapel appeal with a soft lavender corsage ($24.95) or their wrist moxie with a green orchid boutonniere ($29.95). The Teleflora Party Bear bouquet ($35) flaunts an entourage of carnations, chrysanthemums, and larkspur in a glass vase embraced by a loveable happy-birthday bear, which induces sweet sighs without the repercussions of gift-wrapping a live grizzly.

Good for both humans and animals, Critter Control has been using humane wildlife-removal and management techniques since 1982. When bats, birds, raccoons, skunks, ducks, or other creatures invade living spaces, they gently swoop them up and relocate them to their natural homesteads. The crew's experience also extends to pest control, which keeps homes and businesses free of sugar ants, spiders, wasps, box elders, earwigs, silverfish, beetles, and more.
Like a community college's brochure, Greenlands has something for everybody. The boutique store stocks high-end cosmetics, skincare products, and vitamins that span the alphabet and then some. As customers hop from aisle to aisle, they'll stumble upon a wide selection of well-loved household goods including Pantene shampoo, diapers, cold medicine, Samsonite luggage, and electronics. A more exotic offering, yoga mats beckon to tense limbs from the tidy shelves. Children's toys beg for the attention of passing toddlers, and Ray-Ban sunglasses stylishly wait to shield eyes from the bright sun.
Though Florida spans nearly 60,000 square miles, Jane Thompson manages to fit most of it onto 10 acres. Throughout her plant nursery, Thompson—who claims certification from and affiliation with such agrarian societies as the Florida Association of Native Nurseries—and her team tend to more than 60 native species that range from beach-dune sunflowers to coffee trees. By specializing in these native species, Indian Trails' growers supply property owners with plants that readily adapt to Florida's climate so that they thrive with little to no irrigation. Thompson also helps homeowners plan their landscapes through onsite demonstration plantings or design consultations, in which she offers essentials such as plant selection, construction of retaining walls, and transition of plants from the nursery to preschool.
