What You'll Get
The ground is filled with more than semicursed treasure chests and fully candied dinosaur bones. Let nature's soil-sitters watch over your subterranean cache with today's Groupon: for $17, you get $40 worth of plants and garden supplies at the Fort Collins Nursery in Fort Collins.
The Fort Collins Nursery collects thousands of vibrant flowers, seasonal shrubbery, and sturdy trees on 3 acres of terra-formed tracts. Customers can stroll through leafy lanes connected by gravel paths or peruse the indoor greenhouse and gardening center when weather dips below optimal browsing temperatures. Floral selections vary based on the season with roses blooming, fruits ripening, and decorative grass sprouting according to perennial dockets scheduled by Mother Nature and the U.S. government. Spring assortments include flavorful bunches of corsican mint ($7.49), vibrant marigolds (starting at $2.29), and the plump, pleasing comanche gooseberry plant ($14.99).
The nursery staff provides erudite assistance by mining their mental appendixes of regional greenery and helpful tips to ready emerald plots for welcoming spring showers or harsh bikini seasons. This helpfulness extends to the nursery's community involvement, as they participate in a number of events, such as a spring open house on April 16–17 and a ladies' night on June 10 that help raise funds for local charities.
