Green thumbs mean many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, finger painter, or actually just a gecko in need of a lift to the next truck stop. Add some colour to your opposable digits with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get an outdoor evergreen-container workshop at Gemmell’s Garden Centre (a $20 value). This Groupon is valid for the following dates:
- Sunday, November 20, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
- Monday, November 21, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
- Tuesday, November 22, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.<p>
For more than 80 years, Gemmell’s Garden Centre has nurtured green thumbs with vast variety of plants, gardening accessories, and educational workshops. During the two-hour evergreen-display workshop, students artfully arrange verdant evergreen branches and boughs within the elegant confines of an 8-inch Victorian urn. Gardening gurus assist students as they prune their greenery and complement its display with a vibrant, weatherproof bow to create festive centrepieces for snowman weddings.
Alternatively, students can opt to put their Groupon’s value toward one of Gemmell’s other workshops ($35–$50) including winter-themed classes such as a wreath-making class or instructional garden-gnome rearing. Before and after class, a gift store and a retail greenhouse can inspire minds with a cast of holiday plants and decorating ideas.
