Like teenagers, plants require adequate nutrition to bloom, but rarely ever move. Feed your foliage with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of plants and garden products at The Great Big Greenhouse.
The Great Big Greenhouse's knowledgeable staff, which includes Virginia-certified horticulturists, doles out plant-care advice to green-thumbed guests while maintaining 3.5 acres of colorful foliage replenished daily. Customers can celebrate autumn's finest fruit by picking a pumpkin ($0.49/lb.) that's great for carving jack-o'-lanterns and filling with Easter eggs, or infuse gardens with the autumnal hues of fall pansies ($15.99/market flat). Visitors can surprise companions with a 3-gallon pot of encore azaleas ($29.99) or a 7-gallon pot of Compacta holly ($29.99). A 3-foot tall Leyland cypress ($29.99) adds lush greenery to lackluster lawns and half-occupied tandem bicycles, and a collection of garden ornaments, statuary, and wind chimes add purpose to vacant plots. Customers can browse the open-air Huguenot-Robious farmer's market every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to sample fresh-baked breads, locally grown produce, and wares crafted by local artisans.
