With the majority of rogue scientists predicting that plants will enslave humans by the turn of the 22nd century, there's no time like now to start pleasing leafy overlords. Today's Groupon gives you the skills you need to survive the future with $25 worth of plants, garden supplies, and more for $10 at Pistils Nursery.
Catering to the distinct and diverse needs of the urban farmer, Pistils Nursery has myriad ways to celebrate the seasonal shift. Instead of planting invisible plants, have something to show for your trouble by the end of summer. The nursery's sizable, eclectic selection of indoor plants and plant containers might seem intimidating at first, but the staff of earth experts will help you find the plants to fit your needs, and vice-versa. Terrariums, a Pistils specialty available in a wide array of sizes and styles (small, table-top terrariums are $10–$22, whereas larger terrariums range from $40–$300), are a perfect, glass-enclosed way to breathe life into any apartment, or to accessorize for your Bratz playhouse. Beyond the bio-dome, Pistils pedals a large selection of strange and wondrous, sustainably grown local plants that thrive in the Northwest climate (indoor plants cost $2.50–$36, and outdoor plants range from $8–$80).
Pistils also provides the metropolitan farmer the cracked corn, soil amendments, locally grown vegetables, and red worms for composting. Suit up with high-end gardening tools (accessories and tools range from $3–$90) and DIY farming books ($10–$38) to wage nonviolent war against the lifeless concrete jungle that ceaselessly tries to suffocate your green spirit. For those allergic to farming, Pistils also has a large selection of gifts such as paintings, jewelry, and sculptures crafted by local artisans.

- I've gone to a lot of the bigger nurseries around town and I've never found the unique selection for plants or chicken keeping or the personal service I get at Pistils. – Sally P., Insider Pages
- The nursery itself is gorgeous. Cool building, tons of healthy plants, baby bantam chickens pecking away indoors, and full grown ones keeping the pest population low outside. – fisheyedview, Citysearch
