Less sticky than stolen honey and easier to tolerate than a kidnapped queen, flowers are one of the few good gifts that attract bees. Cross-pollinate your way into someone's heart with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get two 10-inch hanging baskets at Huizenga Brothers Greenhouses and Garden Center (a $19.94 value). This Groupon expires on June 30.
The Huizenga family has been coaxing shy blossoms from the earth for more than 100 years, providing a renewable source of natural beauty. Experienced staff members will help customers choose from more than 20 different varieties of hanging baskets bursting with color. Popular petal picks include pretty pink and lilac supertunias, sunshine-slurping geraniums, and bizarro-world nolips, which thrive on moonlight and vodka. Unlike their ground-based brethren, hanging baskets can be moved inside during cold weather to prevent frostbite, and their altitude advantage places them closer to the sun’s life-giving rays. A pair of baskets provides an easy way to celebrate spring, liven up drab buildings, and double the chances of an unexpected beanstalk growing up into the kingdom of giants.
Huizenga Bros Greenhouses & Garden Center
Since 1908, the Huizenga family has tended to the same parcel of land that is now Huizenga Bros Greenhouses & Garden Center. There, fifth-generation family members work alongside the staff in the greenhouses, where annuals or perennials for planting in pots or flower beds are doted upon.
