Horticulturists agree that garden soil reaches its most optimal pH level when homeowners stop using it to hide the evidence of build-your-own-car-battery kits gone awry. Practice the ins and outs of growing flourishing flora with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of plants and garden decor at Urban Oasis.
Urban Oasis gathers a cornucopia of common and unusual plants, statuary, and pottery to adorn backyards and glorify plots. Four-inch perennials add cyclical splendour to backyard Pangaea shrines ($3.99 each), and hanging baskets festively festoon household hooks ($19.99–$69.99). Urban Oasis also hybridizes collections of rare and new-release day lilies, which liberate yards from the clutches of typicality while bestowing a beautiful bloom ($9.99–$299.99). Customers can even choose to adopt the unbloomed 3-year-old seed of a new variety and be the first to witness its unique petal design and preference for cream soda over water.
Urban Oasis Garden Centre
With roots in both horticulture and the visual arts, Urban Oasis Garden Centre owner Sandra Nelson combines her green thumb and trained aesthetic senses to help area gardens flourish healthily. Sandra fills Urban Oasis with character-defining blooms and decor, which include a kaleidoscopic collection of more than 3,000 flowers—including rare day lily varieties Sandra cross-bred herself—as well as a selection of pottery, planters, birdbaths, and statues. Believing gardening to be a journey of continuous learning, she encourages greenskeepers to ask questions or get help on larger projects through her Ask the Garden Coach instruction program.
