  9. ZOOM - Lawn & GardenTalk - Plant Parenting

    Aug. 20, 2020

    Have you ever considered becoming a PLANT PARENT? While to some of us the term “plant parent” is a relatively new thing, but, it's not really new at all. It's not exactly the same as parenting a child or caring for your pet, but it is about nurturing and attending to the needs of plants to bring about new plants.
