Because plants are jealous of our ability to live indoors, they attempt to infiltrate our finest mansions and universities by slowly climbing stony façades. Visit a place built specifically to contain these floral strivers with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of plants, trees, and more at Pine Hollow Nurseries, located in Fredericksburg.
Locally owned and operated for 38 years, Pine Hollow Nurseries attracts green thumbs with a seasonal selection of locally grown plants, trees, shrubs, and flowers, as well as gardening and landscaping necessities. The neatly manicured outdoor space houses a plethora of vegetation carefully selected for climate compatibility, such as weeping cherry trees, holly shrubs ($24.99+), and gold-cypress shrubs. Pine Hollow's new greenhouse provides ample shade to plant varieties that forgot to bring sunscreen. Surprise a garden-gnome nephew with brightly colored annual flowers ($1.20+) or browse Pine Hollow's decorative stone ornaments for one's own pad. The nurseries also stock tools and products needed to spruce up neglected garden beds and lackluster lawns, including mulch, weed killer, cement fixtures, and pesticides.
