Trees, mankind’s greatest enemy, are finally on the ropes thanks to global warming. Teach your children how to hunt the last of these enormous nitrogen junkies by observing them in captivity with today's Groupon: for $11, you get a 4- to 6-foot peach or plum tree at Arbolito Horticulture on Patricia Street (a $22.95 value).
Arbolito Horticulture’s expert horticulturists care for an assortment of newborn trees sourced exclusively from local Texas growers. Browse bountiful rows of neatly aligned saplings before selecting the 4- to 6-foot tree that woos you with rustling leaf whispers and provocative poses. After taking newly acquired leaf-sprouting friends home, tree owners can transplant their young trees from 5-gallon training pots into lawn dwellings, where they'll branch out to new heights and develop into fully grown fruit factories. Given proper care, peach and plum trees will yield juicy fruits that will eliminate risky encounters with grocery-store fruit sprayers outside of recreational purposes.
The staff at Arbolito Horticulture tends to each of the native and adapted plants to fully-fledged greenery, always using all-natural products to create hearty, healthy shrubs, trees, and perennials. Looking for a tree that provides shade, ornamental qualities, or even bears fruit, the immense inventory includes all three, with varieties such as peach trees, windmill palms, and desert willows. Meanwhile, lower ground cover is found among perennials, which range in size and color from ancient blue agave to vines and daisies.
