Without plants, there would be no oxygen and nothing to prevent bunnies from discovering that humans taste delicious. Hop out of danger and into home gardening with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of plants and other gardening supplies at Millcreek Gardens.
A 3.5-acre horticultural haven, Millcreek Gardens gives bloom-seekers a means to realize dreams of colorful, lush outdoor spaces by presenting a wide array of shrubs, trees, and assorted flowerpot inhabitants. Stroll amid verdant rows of plant life, perusing prettified foliage ranging from the serene cerulean hues of a delphinium to the cheerful, bubbly blooms of a hydrangea. Accent a lovely lawn with a classic apple tree ($40+), make the bed for a plot of fragrant flowers ($2–$20), or cover up barren yards with a symphony of shrubbery ($6.50–$50). The one-stop shop also stocks organic plant foods, soil amendments, and fertilizers for keeping growing greenery as strong as a box of oxen.
Calling upon a 52-year horticultural history, the family-owned Millcreek Gardens happily shares a wealth of greenish knowledge about proper planting and upkeep. The amenable staff of plant wranglers also helps shoppers procure non-plant paraphernalia including long-handled pruning tools, eliminating the need to borrow the neighbor’s trampoline to dangerously whack at lofty limbs and rogue frisbees.
