Nature is invigorating. The fresh air, bright blue sky, and green of the trees all work together to reduce stress, improve mental well-being and restore our focus as well as restore the energy to our brains. Such improvements can help us live fuller lives with greater enjoyment for the little things, as well as less stress over the big things.
But, sometimes getting outdoors can be a challenge that can seem impossible to overcome. Whether you spend your day commuting to an office, or work at a school in the middle of a city, finding time to be around greenery can quickly disappear from your life, and reduce your positive energy.
Luckily, many plants thrive indoors and can help purify the air, as well as heighten your mood. If you are looking for plants to put inside your home, or outside for that matter, here are 15 mighty independent nurseries in Denver, offering their blooms to you.
