My Secret Garden's florists gather exotic stems and local blooms to bundle bright, sweet-smelling bouquets appropriate for all occasions. With a build-your-own bouquet, bloom seekers can bundle any stem flowers ($4-$22/stem) or roses ($5/rose) into a sunny arrangement, great for brightening up a kitchen or a supervillain's lair. Select blooms à la carte for personalized sentiments, or browse premade bushels for inspiration. An assorted bunch of soft greens, pink oriental lilies, and tulips, as in the cheery Garden Symphony (priced by stem count), captures the bright mood of a birthday or the anniversary of a successful breakout from Alcatraz. For the romantics, a dozen roses ($60) gather a love poem into a ribbon, and the Sweet Serenade bouquet (priced by stem count) displays a colorful valentine of pink ranunculus and mini calla lilies
Refueling barbecue bashes and backyard parties, Lindsey Rentals supplies the gas that pushes the grill up to a flammable feast. Propane sets the stage for backyard feasts, bringing a taste of summer to the table of friends, guests, and that one guy who you suspect may be living behind the rose garden. Give the gift of 20 pounds of gas to your winter-starved grill, and accent the smells of summer cookouts with barbecue meats and smoked steaks. The experienced and helpful hands at Lindsey Rentals will ensure that each tank is properly filled, answer any questions prospective “Kiss the Cook” apron wearers may have, and politely inform any customer if his or her homemade propane tank is actually just a windsock with a hose attached to it.
For more than 120 years, Busch’s Florist has dispatched flowers across the country. The family-owned company recruits its own drivers for local deliveries, and entrusts all other orders to upstanding industry partners. Regardless of destination, each order contains the freshest flowers. Florists arrange blossoms for traditional occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries, but also maintain a holiday calendar that denotes other possible motivations, such as sister's day or third Tuesday of the month.
All plants are gathered from native Missouri fauna that have consented to have their clippings or seeds donated to science, and are grown in high-quality potting soil that does not contain peat moss, which can make it more difficult for plants to adapt to their new homes. For shipped orders, Missouri Wildflowers Nursery guarantees that your plants or seeds will arrive in good condition, and that all species are true to their name and professed veganism.
For the technicians of A&A Pest Control, class is always in session. Before donning the company's employee garb, they must pass a rigorous training course that equips them to deal with all manner of insect and rodent issues. The education doesn't end there, though, as the staff constantly researches and tests new methods of pest control, from field-testing new chemicals that reduce ant populations to breeding invisible cats that pounce upon unwelcome mice. Additionally, technicians eschew the one-size-fits-all approach to pest control for more customized service by investigating each building to determine the type of infestation and the best course of action for removal.
