PLANT SOMETHING FOR GIVING
Science has proven that giving and receiving flowers makes us happy. The gift of cut flowers is something you can give yourself or others all season long. With the right mix of annual and perennial flowers, you can create a cutting garden that ensures something is in bloom from early spring to fall. You will always have fresh flowers ready to bring cheer to your home, the office, or to share with a friend.

Being in nature or even the sight of plants, trees, and flowers have all been scientifically proven to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and simply make us happier.
