Without plants to generate oxygen, humans would have to retrieve it from scuba tanks and the minty breath of local supermen. Keep the air alive with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of perennials and garden accessories at Whitehouse Perennials in Almonte. This Groupon expires on August 15.
Whitehouse Perennials invites gardeners to stroll through its 5-acre nursery and display garden alight with hundreds of varieties of daylilies, hostas, and other perennials. Add a floral touch to the everyday by festooning a neglected forehead with a garland of eye-snagging Echinacea "Irresistible" ($14.50). A big and bold sampler of daylilies fills flower boxes and garden borders with five different showy and vigorous plants spanning a spectrum of hues ($75). Shaded yard space, meanwhile, welcomes the addition of lush, wide-leaf hosta plants ($7+) available in a diverse selection of colours and sizes. Customers can also challenge garden gnomes to duels with a snap from Whitehouse Perennials' sturdy garden gloves ($8.88), among other available garden accessories.
The nursery’s friendly bloom buffs avail themselves to answer any gardening questions, such as the best time to recruit flowers for bridal bouquets. In addition, customers who make an appointment can stop by on Saturdays for a free garden-design consultation with a designer who helps green thumbs draw up plans for fertile fields.
