Edible Arrangements smothers semisweet chocolate on one of six fresh fruits, including apples, strawberries, oranges, pineapple, pears, and bananas, to ensure loved ones meet daily confections quotas. More popular than other edible dozens, such as eggs or tube socks, the 12 fruit pieces come packaged in a decorative box, ready to unleash unadulterated affection to rejoicing recipients. The strawberry- and-granny-smith-apple box contains crisp freshness beneath its enticing exterior, and dipped orange wedges and pineapple daisies envelop taste buds in a citrus cyclone. On a holiday, a first school day, or any day, an Edible Arrangement can turn a frown into an upright grapefruit wedge, a tear into a three-tiered citrus structure, and a friend into still just a friend, but one with a sweet, balanced diet.
Grode Florist is a floral boutique specializing in contemporary and traditional floral and plant arrangements. To warm a cold room, or the chilly blood of an alligator you want be your pet and live beneath your kitchen sink, opt for an arrangement of tropicals such as the strawberry floral margarita, a bundle of brilliantly colored Dendrobium orchids, lilies, alstroemeria, and roses. Or, surprise a lover of sudsy brews with a beer mug of blooms, a display of fresh, white, mini carnations in an acrylic beer mug (filled with rocks, not beer or copies of Rodney Dangerfield's autobiography). Grode's also has a selection of silk, plant, and dried floral arrangements for the herbaceously-indecisive.
Renee’s Greenhouses has experienced not only physical growth since opening in 2000—the owners moved from their backyard to a full-size retail shop in 2005—but also philosophical growth. As their inventory expanded, they decided to get bigger shelves and focus on eco-friendly products, such as all-natural soils, fertilizers, and pest-control products. The owners are also phasing out plastic plant containers, instead opting for 100% natural terracotta pottery. The selection of flora ranges from ornamental grasses and shrubbery to perennials and fruit trees; shoppers overwhelmed by the selection can consult with on-site designers from Yardley Designs.
