Discover the Fun of Gardening
The Kerby's E-Newsletter for March 9, 2017   

Plants, like people thrive
in the right conditions.

My mother recently sent me a really great gardening quote. "The gardener does not make the plant grow. The job of a gardener is to create optimal conditions." Actually, the quote wasn't really about gardening at all. It is from Sir Ken Robinson, who is a British author and speaker on education and creativity. He applies it to teaching creativity and innovation, saying that you can't teach a person creativity, but you can create conditions for creativity and innovation to grow. We've all had experiences with this. We've had teachers, bosses and friends who didn't create the conditions around us that encourage us to grow and  thrive. Fortunately, we all also have people in our lives that do create those ideal conditions for us to become better people. Hopefully, those are the people we surround ourselves with.

Kerby's can make sure you create the right conditions for all of your plants.
Even though the quote wasn't specifically about gardening, it is as important for plants, as it is for people. The best way for plants to grow and thrive, to bloom and bear fruit is for us, the gardeners, to create an optimal condition for them. For plants, that means good soil , good fertilizer and of course consistent watering. Great harvests and beautiful flowers don't just happen (even if your neighbor tells you it doesn't take any work). So while you are out this weekend picking out gorgeous flowers, tasty veggies and tantalizing fruit trees for your garden, remember to talk with us about how to get the most out of your plants.  We'll make sure you find what you need to create the optimal conditions for everything you plant to thrive.


Happy Gardening,
The Kerby's Nursery Family
