The holidays are the only time of the year when it's appropriate to point at a dead plant and expect a kiss. Channel your mistletoe horticultural failure into romance, then reward yourself with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of holiday décor at Harris Garden Center, located in Webster on Nine Mile Point Road.
The Harris Garden Center evolved from the Harris Seed Company, a Rochester gardening authority since 1879, and it continues to uphold a high horticultural standard through a wide variety of annuals, vegetables, and supplies. The store showcases more than 10 themed Christmas trees, including traditional, Adirondack, and sports-centric saplings. Confuse tree bark by hanging a bulldog ornament ($2.75) from its limbs or let a sports-figure ornament ($6.99) display impossible athletic ability as it stays suspended in the air. Other ornamental options include ballet slippers ($3.99), wine bottles ($4.99–$12.99), and an acutely shrunken school bus ($5.49).
Additionally, Harris supplies a venerable variety of vegetables and flowers for casual cultivators and extreme-botany adrenaline junkies alike. To fuel these festive acts, hot chocolate and cookies make appearances every weekend.
