We are often asked at the nursery why our plants look so healthy. This got me thinking ”Is it true, are our plants really better than others?”
How could that be? After all, a plant is a plant. And with a little water and fertilizer any plant will be happy and grow well. What could be the Bear Creek difference?
Well, these thoughts resulted in further speculation about all the great folks who work here and help us out. It’s not just that these friends are good with plants or are savvy gardeners. It has to do with the way they communicate with the plants.
Amanda, who is as careful growing her own plants as with the ones at the bear, caresses with her soft voice and thoughtful responses to questions.
Dusty, who is as handy with a tractor as he is transplanting seedlings, hums and whistles to all his charges. Chad, the master of the soil shed, spends more time talking to the soil the plants grow in.
Tracy, a teacher as well as a gardener, talks authoritatively to her plants. Anastasia, gracing the nursery on weekends, will yammer on about anything.
Beth, the latest gardener to grace the greenhouses, kindly talks to plants and people alike. And Gordon is usually heard merely mumbling to all of the above.
Now the truth is out, our secret revealed – all this collective chatter does help the plants. With all this chatting, caressing, charming, yammering, humming, singing, mumbling, murmuring and emoting, our plants are bound to be happier
