The ground is filled with more than semicursed treasure chests and fully candied dinosaur bones. Let nature's soil sitters watch over your subterranean cache with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees at Blossom Nurseries in Yorktown Heights.
Family-operated Blossom Nurseries caters to discerning green thumbs with a swath of plants and gardening accessories. The petal peddler offers more than 10,000 perennials ($12.99 each), all grown on-site. Annuals come in packs of 6 ($2.99) or 48 ($19.99), enough to plant a botanical Magic Eye sailboat. Less-committed gardeners can adorn a naked veranda with a pair of 10-inch hanging baskets ($18.99 each). Indecisive shoppers overwhelmed by the sheer volume of bumblebee bait can seek the counsel of Blossom Nurseries' on-site landscaper, available to help customers with buying decisions and offer advice on what to do when posies begin singing show tunes and demanding human flesh.
All of Blossom's blossoms are grown and cultivated under the watchful eye of general manager Brady Cullen, who earned his horticulture and landscape-design degree from Cornell University before coming to rock the nursery's cradle. Cullen’s Ivy League education helped him develop advanced, environmentally friendly plant-parenting techniques to produce specimens that are stronger, healthier, and more likely to succeed than those offered by big-box garden centers and fly-by-night online flower colleges.
