The verdant displays of flowers, plants, and seasonal, locally grown produce at Gold Coast Landscape & Garden Center form a veritable feast for the senses. Trees, perennials, and annuals from growers such as Overdevest Nurseries, Monrovia, and Endless Summer fill the center’s many planters and pots, sharing space with in-season tomatoes and strawberries. The gardening staff helps visitors to create their own vegetable gardens with these tasty fruits and can even lend their expertise to designing backyard ponds. Inside, a farm market further piques appetites with its selection of steaks, salad dressings, and gourmet cheeses freshly picked from the tree.
Plant Shed New York Flowers, a family-owned-and-operated business for the past 30 years, bedecks its 10,000 square feet of halls for winter-foliage shopping during the holiday season. Normally known as a premier floral shop, the Plant Shed staff puts on their stocking caps and jelly-bowl stomachs to moonlight as holiday horticulturalists. Christmas trees of the Balsam fir persuasion, one of the finest topiary pelts available, come in a range of shapes and sizes to create the ideal present cove. Those opting for the holiday décor option can gaze eggnog-glazed eyes over a wide selection of ornaments ($4–$14/box of four), lighting ($10–$35), garlands ($2–$70/yd.), and tree trimmings ($10–$100). Other holiday décor includes velvety red poinsettias ($5 and up) and beauteous wreathes ($12 and up) worthy of hanging around Rudolph, last year's Triple Crown winner.

Juicy tidbits of chocolate-dunked fruit arrive on the doorsteps of family and friends, done up in colorful bouquets and candy boxes by the skilled fruit arrangers at Edible Arrangements' more than 1,100 franchises worldwide. The company's in-house chocolatiers drizzle albion strawberries, daisy pineapples, and tomatoes getting in touch with their fruit roots in a trio of chocolate flavors. Once properly chocolated, the workers organize the preservative-free sweets into lush arrangements that resemble flowers in bloom. Customers can choose to plop their bouquets in a variety of vessels, including vases, mugs, and sports- or holiday-themed containers that add a personal touch to the edible gifts. Alternatively, customers can opt to adorn gifts with the cheery, red lids of candy boxes, nestling 12 chocolate-dipped morsels inside to build anticipation and determine if loved ones have x-ray vision as they guess whether fruit will come dusted in shredded coconut or drizzled in white chocolate.:
