Without plants, there would be no oxygen and nothing to prevent bunnies from discovering that humans taste delicious. Stave off soft and fuzzy predators with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of flowers, plants, and shrubs at Kent Countryside Nursery in Carmel, New York.
Helmed by a Cornell University horticulturalist, Kent Countryside Nursery's verdant bounty sprawls across six acres to supply local green thumbs with landscaping plants and flowering accents. A smattering of perennials ($4.99+) and well-placed shrubs ($19.99+) allows customers to transform a wide-open lawn into a goldmine of neighbor-duping camouflage. Break up monochromatic landscapes with flashy splashes of florid annuals such as golden marigolds and violet petunias ($14.99 for flats of 48 plants) or cultivate a horde of snapdragons to fend off invading garden-gnome armies. Blushing blooms grown in the nursery’s 4,000-square-foot greenhouse cascade from hanging baskets ($12.99+) to dot the sky with suspended style.
