Like training for a marathon, cultivating plant life requires patience, dedication, and an hourly sprinkling with Gatorade. Grow a team of champion plantletes with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of plants and gardening products at Cactus & Tropicals. Today's deal is valid at both the Salt Lake City and Draper locations.
For more than 35 years, Cactus & Tropicals has livened up sparse plots and reinvigorated depressed patios with a vast, verdant variety of cacti, flowers, and gardening gear. Focusing as much on sprouting seeds as fostering field creativity, the lush storefront boasts an elaborate display area showcasing high-end floral fashions. Winding catwalks guide buyers through crowds of leafy house plants ($3.95+), annuals ($1.79+), and a colorful gathering of orchids culled from around the globe ($16+). Growers with a history of prickly relationships with plants can learn how to care for a cacti garden ($1.95+ each), get paired up with an easy-to-please perennial ($4.29+), or adopt a well-behaved bonsai guaranteed to sit still during fussy grooming sessions.
After passing through the greenhouse's gravel detectors and emptying their pockets of stones, blossom boosters can shop for horticultural accents––including ceramic, terra-cotta, and hand-thrown pots––in climate-controlled comfort all year round. Add some panache to plots with an ebullient fountain or snaz up a green space with help from trellises, outdoor sculptures, sundials, and sleek stepping stones.
