Here is another gem from today’s browsing my Google Reader. It comes from Digger magazine, which is a monthly publication of the Oregon Association of Nurseries. Anna Ball of Ball Horticulture recently addressed the OAN about the future of horticulture. Some of her particularly notable comments:
- “Be equal with the plants.” — Uh-huh.
- “Everything in garden centers is geared to Baby Boomers.” — Wow.
- “You lost me on the second click.” — Yikes.
- “Gardening without touching the soil.” — Uh-oh.
Watch the video (below) as Ms Ball comments on the future of horticulture. And thanks you, Anna, for saying, “Gardening is,” long pause, then quietly, “work”. I tell that to my students and clients all the time. Yes, it is work, but it can be the most enjoyable work you’ve ever done!
