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.
Helmed by a Cornell University horticulturalist, Kent Countryside Nursery sprawls its verdant bounty across six acres to supply local green thumbs with landscaping plants and flowering accents. Social escape plans can be compromised by too few hiding places; with a smattering of perennial grasses ($8.99+) and well-placed shrubs ($19.99+), 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.
