Step into the outside plants departments at Bordine's and take a moment to admire the beautiful arrangements and bubbling ponds. The purple people, as Bordine's calls its staff, are usually busy watering and tending to the plants and are prepared to answer any questions. For the amateur gardener like me, all plants are labeled with instructions and best growing environment. Ask the cashier if the nursery has any current frequent shopper clubs that will earn rewards with each purchase. They have had them in the past but it seems to change every few years.
