So my Grandma apparently is running a plant hospital and rehabilitation center. She can get anything to grow abundantly, so in the past few decades people have literally started dropping off sick and dying plants to her and she would nurse them back to health and return them. She only charges a single clipping from each of the plants she nurses. ???I’m so proud of my Plant Doctor Grandma! ?
This is amazing! Does she take notes of her work?
Yes she does. She has a whole journal that details care for certain diseases and plants. She takes it so seriously.
Does she share her notes at all? I want to get better at recognizing the frailties of plants in different conditions and if they are public at all I would love to read your grandmother’s work.
I will to her about getting her plant research published. She has the funniest notes in there too. Reminders about which plants belong to who, Recipes for natural bug-be-gone, and elaborate descriptions of blooms and even some pressed flowers in there. She’s so important in our community and she also grows sugar cane and vegetables she just gives away.
This is incredible.
She says she has over 250 potted “tenants” at her home right now. Between 30 to 40 belong to other people and she’s just nursing them. And countless “permanent residents” in the ground.
Grandmother of the garden. I love it!!!
