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 $25, you get $50 worth of plants, flowers, and garden accessories at Tagawa Gardens in Centennial.
Voted the Denver area's Best Garden Center in ABC 7's A-List contest for the past four years, Tagawa Gardens houses an army of leafy soldiers in 160,000-square-feet of indoor greenhouses. A VeriFlora-certified sustainable garden center, the store emphasizes eco-friendly gardening methods, stocking a large selection of organically grown herb and vegetable plants, and encouraging natural plant care alternatives, such as letting them grow up completely nude. Inside the center, visitors can stroll past fairy-garden displays before settling on flowery finds such as the hybrid tea-rose bush ($36.99).
Because plants, like bodybuilders, need nutrients and a steady stream of compliments, Tagawa Gardens recommends enhancing soil with demure glances and Nature's Yield compost ($7.99 for a 1.5 cu. ft. bag). Patrons can spruce up patios with stylish furniture so they can sit a spell and admire new potted geraniums ($14.99). A huge store of supplies provides green thumbers with the tools they need to tend to their photosynthetic progeny.
To gussy up special occasions, customers turn to Tagawa's experts at the Live by Design gift plant service, who arrange long-lasting readymade- and custom-orders in a variety of designer pots, vases and baskets ($29.99–$300). A busy calendar of classes and events, some requiring additional fees, instruct horticulture vultures on topics such as saving water, growing fruit indoors, and why eating dirt isn't an effective way to cut out the middle man.
