What You'll Get
Just like babies, seedlings begin their lives in nurseries, demand regular attention, and find the lyrics to “Rock-a-bye Baby” admonishing and terrifying. Plant new life in a safe place with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a one-hour consultation and one-year subscription to a Garden Planner account from groOrganic (a $129 value).
From plans to plants, groOrganic nurtures gardeners' green dreams with a personal consultation and one-year online Garden Planner subscription. During the one-hour, on-location conference, groOrganic consultants coach gardeners through the process of decorating a gender-neutral nursery and parenting plants into a flourishing and functional adulthood. Gardening gurus provide wisdom on maintaining, fertilizing, pruning, and replanting greenery. The one-year Garden Planner subscription helps gardeners plan and proliferate produce in plots of any size or shape. Members can create a greenery blueprint using the online planner, which shows how to allocate seeds and space for maximum success. Vegetables will soundly approve of their all-natural accommodations, and will find it fitting to bear fruit for the blossom boosters who nourish them with fertilizer and tender compliments. The program's personalized planting chart predicts harvest dates based on a variety of factors and horoscope readings. Gardeners can automate email planting prompts from season to season or, for a more perennial reminder, pay an extra fee to have their thumbs tattooed green. Built-in tutorial videos provide quick expert advice and examples.
Although not included in today's Groupon, groOrganic is offering customers the chance to purchase garden packages at a 10 percent discount. groOrganic's The Kardashian Hollywood and Vine Garden appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians ($5,999), and The 90210 Garden was featured on Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott's reality show Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood ($2,099).

- Slow Food is the antithesis: the idea behind the movement is food that's good for you and for the enviornment [sic] is worth waiting for. Fort Lauderdale's Karin Fields is a dedicated soldier of the movement. She works for groOrganic, a California-based company that designs and installs sustainable gardens in backyards, on balconies, and, now, in public schools. – John Linn, New Times Broward-Palm Beach
