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's Garden Center in Cumming.
Ted's 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's 88 acres house annuals ($3.99+), perennials ($9.99+/gallon), unpredictables to populate flower patches, and ornamental grass to spruce up drab carpets of regular grass. Customers can collect trees ($59.99+) for a burgeoning cubicle forest, whereas pottery ($8.99+) and garden art ($19.99+) pass for colorful petrified foliage.
