Since 1965, the flower fans behind Country View Showplace have been amicably guiding Kalamazoo residents toward brighter home gardens. Stuffed with vibrant plants in multifarious hues, the tranquil greenhouse invites patrons to peruse botanical specimens at their leisure or call out alternate names for consistently sweet-smelling rosebushes ($17.99). Country View’s signature floral arrangements, 12-inch hanging Superbaskets, dangle invitingly at eye level ($18.99–$21.99). Baskets bursting with blossoms such as lobelia and wave petunias can act as an excellent aerial buffet for bees, hummingbirds, and full-moon-triggered werebees ($18.99). Annual flats, replete with blossoms from petite impatiens to clusters of ageratum, gussy up garden beds and window boxes with their colorful personalities ($10.99 for 36). Cultivate a home harvest with vegetable annuals such as tomatoes or peppers ($1.99 for tray of six, $0.99 for tray of three), or spruce up homemade cuisine by nurturing herbs such as sage and basil ($2.49).
