Green thumbs mean many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, semisuccessful finger painter, or actually just a gecko in need of a lift to the next truck stop. Add some color to your opposable digits with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of plants and garden supplies at Garden World’s locations in Flushing and Franklin Square.
With more than 50 years in business, Garden World's expansive greenhouse, nursery, and garden shops fill flower beds and backyard sheds with seasonal flowering plants and garden-care supplies. Knowledgeable staff aids customers in outfitting autumnal homes and miniature headless horsemen with sugar pumpkins ($2.19) or protecting fragile pots with hardy mums ($3.29). Invite avian tenants into species-specific birdhouses with artful platters of wild-bird food ($12.99/15 lbs.). Jonathan Green Fall Magic grass seed ($15.99/3 lbs.) and Scotts Super Turf Builder Winterguard ($21.99) grant nourishment and weather protection to lawns, trees, shrubs, and vacationing Venus flytraps. Garden World's verdant grounds also stockpile various gardening tools as well as propane, pool chemicals, and pet supplies.
Recently merged with Kell Brothers, another leader in the Garden Industry, Garden World's two locations each have a greenhouse and outdoor nursery with a wide variety of thriving plant life, including trees ranging from a four-inch rock-garden evergreen to a 2.5-inch caliper specimen tree. Indoors, a garden shop offers essential items for installing or maintaining a garden. Here you can find tools for planting tulips or digging up your first bank account. For holidays, special occasions, or corporate events, Garden World’s staff can assemble seasonal bouquets, office decorations, and other greenery-rich gifts. The shop also carries indoor plants, silk flower arrangements, and other home-décor items.
