Leaves are Mother Nature's hands, which she rustles to applaud boy scouts who have completed their forestry merit badge. Set the stage for lots of standing ovations with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of plants and gardening supplies at Ted Lare Garden Center in Cumming.
Ted Lare Garden Center, in operation for almost three decades and housed in a new facility since 2007, harmonizes a symphony of verdure and home-garden supplies. The center offers 88 acres of fall mums ($7.99+), house annuals ($3.99+), perennials ($9.99+/gallon), and unpredictables to populate flower patches, as well as pumpkins ($3.99+), or ornamental grass to spruce up drab carpets of regular grass. Customers can collect trees ($59.99+) and shrubs ($24.99+) for a burgeoning cubicle forest, and pottery ($8.99+) and garden art ($19.99+) can pass for colorful petrified foliage.
