While the old maxim "say it with flowers" works for asking someone out on a date, floral love gurus know saying it with well-cultivated landscapes works when asking your wife if you can purchase a blimp. Brighten your outdoor scenery so you can see it from a zeppelin with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of trees, shrubs, and other greeneries from Green Acres Nursery, located in Vista.
Green Acres Nursery maintains more than 600 varieties of plants and trees on more than 15 acres, most of which are tailored to southwestern landscapes. White, ornamental star jasmine bushes ($9.78 for 5 gal.) will withstand drought while inviting visiting noses to whiff their ambrosial scents, while vibrant, purple bougainvillea ($4.20 for 1 gal.) will florally fill gaps in any fence to keep opossums from trespassing. Since the ordinary backyard aquascape has deflated Mylar balloons for lily pads and aged pitas for skipping stones, make your pond superb by adding naturally luscious philodendrons ($49.40 for 15 gal.). Green Acres Nursery cultivates each greenling on-site in its nursery, caring for them from the time they're a tiny bud to their first day of kindergarten.

Green Acres' staff will happily assist visitors as they peruse the nursery's more than 15 acres of greenery. The shrubaholics on staff will help amateur landscapers design arrangement best suited for their space, as well as answer questions on common gardening conundrums, such as drip irrigation and keeping out pollen-hungry chipmunks.
