Cyber Monday is a much friendlier way to kick off the holiday shopping season than Black Friday ever was. You can shop at work, for one thing, and also avoid exposure to loudspeaker-piped carols at shopping malls.
We’ve been admirers of Cyber Monday ever since the National Retail Federation named the occasion in 2005, so we’re not surprised to learn today is the biggest online shopping day of the year. With a long list of gardeners to shop for this holiday season (and an even longer list of friends and family we want to encourage to head outdoors for the fresh air), we’ve rounded up ten of the best Cyber Monday deals:
Above: Restoration Hardware is offering 20 percent off on orders of $500 or more with checkout code SAVE100 through Dec. 1. A collection of Live Boxwood Topiaries (planters sold separately) ranges in price from $45 to $470 depending on size and shape. A large Live Boxwood Cone is $500.
Above: Spring-blooming bulbs, including narcissi and hyacinths, are marked down by 50 percent at Terrain. A set of eight scented Narcissus ‘White Lion’ Bulbs with ruffled yellow and cream-colored petals is $4.95.
