Jung Garden Center's five verdant locations flourish with a multitude of seeds, bulbs, and live plants to spruce up windowsills and landscaped yards. Customers can transport spring to flora-starved yards by sprinkling the seeds of the Alaska shasta daisy ($2.25/200-seed packet), or ward off colds and close social interaction by planting 10 200-seed packets of garlic chive herbs ($15). Lady Mix marigolds ($3.45 for a 50-seed packet) permeate spaces with citrusy hues, and the bright red Lizzano hybrid tomato ($5.50 for two 10-seed packets) tries to sneak out of backyard gardens disguised as a clown nose.

A family gathers in front of a fire to watch flames dance inside a teepee of logs. After several moments, a uniformed staffer walks over to ask whether they have any questions, and, startled, they stop telling ghost stories or reminiscing about bygone summer bonfires to think about whether they'd like that very model in their own home. Fireside Hearth & Home's cozy design room has that effect. Several staged but comfortable living rooms, kitchens, and patios revolve around fireplaces and stoves, letting customers really imagine life around the hearth. The inventory of gas, wood, and electric fireplaces, as well as stoves and inserts come out of the workshops of top brands such as Heat & Glo, Heatilator, Quadra-Fire, and Outdoor Lifestyles. The knowledgeable staffers can explain the variances of styles and features, as well as install new fireplaces and convert wood fireplaces to gas ones.
