Green thumbs mean many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, semisuccessful finger painter, or actually just a gecko in need of a lift to the next truck stop. Add some colour to your opposable digits with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of plants and gardening supplies at Bylands Garden Centre.
Since 1954, Bylands Garden Centre, the British Columbia Landscape & Nursery Association's 2010 Grower of the Year, has populated a 400-acre nursery with a verdant variety of trees, shrubs, vines, and flowers, complemented by a range of tools, gardening accessories, home décor, jewellery and gifts. Canadian trees and shrubs are hardy enough to withstand the elements and happily befriend lonely snowmen. Blueberry plants ($13.50) may, over time, enliven drab muffins, and hydrangeas burst into fertile globes of vibrant colours atop a flowerbed covered in a cape of Black Diamond top soil ($5.99). As with a theoretical physicist in a Hawaiian print shirt, small tropical plants ($4.99) add an unexpected dash of the exotic.
