A garden is traditionally a place of sanctuary, where one can contemplate nature’s bounty and discreetly bury cursed gold. Tend your garden with today’s Groupon. For $15, you get $35 worth of flowers and gardening supplies from Engh Gardens in Sandy.
In addition to being a 2010 Gold Key Grower, Engh provides florist services, workshops, and events. Today’s Groupon, however, applies only to in-store purchases of plants and supplies. Horticulturalists can stock up on vegetable pony packs ($2.99), individual premium annuals ($4.99), gallons of Martha Washington geraniums ($9.99), herbs ($7.99), and small hanging baskets ($19.99). Garden supplies for purchase include Black Gold earthworm mix ($7.99), peat moss ($17.99–$24.99), and black plastic pots ($0.19–$4.99).
Owner and local television personality Darin Engh stocks his garden center with an extensive range of annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, vines, roses, vegetables, and accessories. Merchandise is displayed in a labyrinth of enticing mini-gardens, complete with mini-minotaurs singing botanical facts to passersby. All bedding plants are grown on-site, carefully nurtured and swaddled by Engh’s doting staff. To redeem their Groupon, Salt Lake City residents need only drive 14.5 miles to Sandy.
