Without plants, there would be no oxygen and nothing to prevent bunnies from discovering that humans taste delicious. Breathe easy with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of plants and gardening supplies at Cooke’s Gardens in Williamsburg.
Cooke’s Gardens helps yard guardians transform dirt patches into bloom bastions with a wide selection of flowers, shrubs, and green-thumb supplies. Kick-start springtime by lining garden and bunk beds with marigolds, petunias, and other annuals ($19.99+/flat). Infusing the lawn with grass seed makes neighbors’ mowers green with envy ($13.99+), and a fresh crop of tomatoes and peppers sustains salads all summer ($19.99+/flat). Cooks can add a personalized flavor to recipes by harvesting their own fresh basil, dill, and oregano ($3.99+), and local kittens will pounce upon yards trimmed with catnip ($3.99+) and dog-shoo. Visitors seeking trees and shrubs can also chat up one of the staff’s savvy horticulturalists, who will locate the latest arrivals and explain how a green thumb can help when hitchhiking near tractor drivers.
