Like snake charmers, horticulturists hypnotize their baskets’ inhabitants into straining skyward, swaying gently, and never, ever breaking eye contact. Mesmerize your own perennials with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of plants and garden supplies at NatureScapes in Armonk. This Groupon expires June 30, 2011.
NatureScapes supplies customers with greenery, flowers, and ornamental accents for any horticultural endeavor, with an emphasis on outdoor container gardens. Cloaked in white shingles and skirted in natural wooden planters, NatureScapes’ shop invites aspiring plantologists to explore their vast and varied options. Blooms abound for those wishing to choreograph a riotous dance of color in homes or yards, ranging from florist-quality orchids that can flourish for up to six months ($29+) to outdoor plants including organic herbs, vegetables, decorative hanging baskets, and select trees and shrubs ($4.99+). With improved control over soil conditions and pests, container garden plants ($4.99+) give brown thumbs a second or third chance to apologize to nature and earn valuable dirt cred. Those who have already defected to the rewarding yet growth-stilted world of outdoor pottery and garden ornaments ($59+) will find plenty of potential replacements for a wandering garden yeti, and urban dwellers delight in the selection of indoor plants and pottery ($15+), any of which can be potted on-site by the nature-nurturing staff.
Spring is bearing down on the remaining days of cold weather like a runaway-train-shaped parade float, making the next few weeks the ideal time for planting and gift giving. Mother’s Day and nearly all other spring holidays are structurally supported by the mutual exchange of love and flowers, although nature-related gifts are appropriate surrogates.
