People blessed with green thumbs are naturals at gardening, and those with blue toes should buy shoes that fit. Exercise pigmented weed pluckers with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $45 worth of gardening items at Ahner's Garden and Gifts in Des Peres. This Groupon is valid for anything in the store, including sale items.
Ahner's Garden and Gifts shelters more than 100 different varieties of tropical houseplants in a Dutch-made retail greenhouse. After passing through the greenhouse's gravel detectors and emptying their pockets of stones, blossom boosters can shop for horticultural accents in climate-controlled comfort all year round. Floral fans especially fawn over Ahner's nearly 25 different types of orchids. Premium orchids in 6 in. pots start at $29.50 and can be found in such exotic varietals as the Wilsonara and the Brassia, known as the "spider orchid" because of its double life as an orchid and photographer for The Daily Bugle. If your planters are currently being used to store your collection of precious antique cobwebs, Ahner's botany builders will happily fill them with custom flower arrangements. Prices are based on planter type and size.
If you're still green to greenery, Ahner's helpful gardening experts will advise you on ways to equip empty yard patches in the fall so that they will transform into hustling and bustling hummingbird spas by spring. Otherwise, trick out a living space with stylish furnishings from the center's selection of gifts and decorations. And as we enter the season that typically sees an alarming rise in jolly-elf home invasions and reverse burglaries, Ahner's will also stock a variety of holiday flourishes and 5 ft. Fraser firs ($39).
