Green thumbs mean many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, semi-successful finger painter, or actually just a gecko in need of a lift to the next truck stop. Add some color to your opposable digits with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of plants at Wells Nursery in Mount Vernon.
For more than 70 years, Wells Nursery has decked yards and gardens with a lush selection of distinctive plant and tree species, many of which were discovered and cultivated by Wells Nursery co-founder Harold Wells and director of operations Neil Hall. Lovingly adorn lawns with decorative grasses ($9.99/1-gal. pot), or splash front yards with more color than biweekly family paintball fights with azaleas ($9.99/1-gal. pot). Wells' vegetation virtuosos propagate more than 150 acres of plants on-site to ensure vitality and quality, including a crop of fragrant grafted conifers. The Wells Ruby Slippers, a flowering dogwood ($125+), blooms beautifully late in the season for fall foliage, and the Wells Green Knight, a symmetrical oriental spruce ($125+), helps ring in holidays and Tuesday afternoons.
