Plants, 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 buying them in captivity and bringing them home with today's Groupon. For $15, you'll get $30 worth of plants at Benken Florist and Garden Center. Today's Groupon is valid for plant materials only, and cannot be used for florist services.
Benken's greenhouses are beaming with fantastic flora, with everything from easy-to-grow plants to exotic tropical trees represented. For rejuvenating flower power every spring, consider selecting from the thousand-plus perpetual perennials ($12.99 and up). Otherwise, increase the splendor of this year's garden goodies by stocking up on annuals ($5.99–$9.99). Similar to cheap beer, except more delicious and rewarding, six-packs of vegetable plants go for $4.99. A properly pampered 4" tomato plant ($2.59) will produce pounds of produce, ensuring that the "T" in one's summer BLTs won't have to be teabags or treacle again. Gardening gourmands, meanwhile, can spice up their outdoors with $5.99 herbs. Hanging baskets of geraniums ($29.99) add an airiness and color to any porch or dungeon. Three gallons of knockout roses ($34.99) will finally give your yard a way to ask you to marry it, while one gallon of Patriot hostas ($14.99) lets you celebrate Independence Day with a ka-bloom that will outlast any firework's ka-boom.
Since 1939, Benken's has been owned and operated by the Benken family and is now run by Michael and Kathleen Benken. The friendly and knowledgeable staff will help you find everything you need to revamp your garden. Get your Groupon and scoop up spring's freshest flowers before it's too late in the season and the only plants left are stranded in pots of tears instead of frolicking in the earth with their blossoming buddies.
