Green thumbs mean many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, semisuccessful 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 $10, you get $20 worth of plants, shrubs, and trees at Indian Trails Native Nursery in Lake Worth.
For nearly 25 years, Indian Trails Native Nursery's knowledgeable staff has helped adorn gardens and landscape backyards with more than 60 species of native Floridian plant life. Verdant grasses, trees, and plants sprawl over 10 acres, which includes a garden for live planting demonstrations. Specialists schooled in native plants consult with clients as they select vibrant wildflowers ($3.95 for 1 gal.) to brighten up their front lawn or neighbor's Volkswagen. Alternatively, stylish greenery such as coontie ($8 for 1 gal.) or spikes of saw palmetto ($12 for 3 gal.) can enliven dreary offices. Customers can also adopt shrubs ($8.50 for 3 gal., $28 for 7 gal.) to sculpt into a likeness of a wicked witch, ensuring that their foliage stays green and viable year-round with a minimal amount of hydration. Indian Trails Native Nursery is open for walk-ins on Saturdays, while Mondays–Fridays are by appointment only.
Indian Trails Native Nursery
Though Florida spans nearly 60,000 square miles, Jane Thompson manages to fit most of it onto 10 acres. Throughout her plant nursery, Thompson—who claims certification from and affiliation with such agrarian societies as the Florida Association of Native Nurseries—and her team tend to more than 60 native species that range from beach-dune sunflowers to coffee trees. By specializing in these native species, Indian Trails' growers supply property owners with plants that readily adapt to Florida's climate so that they thrive with little to no irrigation. Thompson also helps homeowners plan their landscapes through onsite demonstration plantings or design consultations, in which she offers essentials such as plant selection, construction of retaining walls, and transition of plants from the nursery to preschool.
