The ground is filled with more than semicursed treasure chests and fully candied dinosaur bones. Let nature's soil sitters watch over your subterranean cache with today's Groupon: for $16, you get a vegetable-and-herb kit or a flower kit with a dozen plants of your choice from Windmill Gardens in Sumner (a $35.88 value).
Each spring for almost 30 years, 30,000 blooming bulbs have dressed Windmill Gardens’ namesake structure in a bright and flowing floral skirt, attracting foliage fanciers who cart home petaled loot in individual pots or flats to decorate their own backyards. Stroll the foliage-festooned grounds to select a dozen greens for your kit—you’ll get six pony packs with three to six plants, each 2 to 5 inches tall (a $1.99 value each) and six individually potted 4-inch plants (a $3.99 value each). Choose from hundreds of annuals to fill your flower garden, such as impatiens and geraniums, or opt to stock up on peppers, chives, tomatoes, and other edibles. After checkout, linger on location to take advantage of Windmill Gardens’ other amenities, including a bistro, a salon spa, and a loose-leaf tea shop.
