  1. Always a wealth of information, Jeff. Thank you. I am waiting for your new book ‘The Truth about Turfgrass and the Four Step Fertilization Program’! I know, it would be short but people need to be told what to do and why.

  2. Now I can justify the jungle at my work desk as beneficial to the office atmosphere.

    I just wish plants could clean out the communal fridge and microwave, too. 😉

  3. *blushing and gushing* I love your books, Jeff!

    I have to say, that I stumbled upon the whole orchid blooming thing quite by accident about ten years ago. I set my orchids outside (Phals) and pretty much ignored them until it was PRACTICALLY frosting outside, and then brought them in. Within a few weeks, they pushed up at least one flower stalk, each. Good one!

  4. When my employer moved into a brand new office building years ago, the chemical fumes were so strong I’d go home each day with a headache & a sore throat. Then one day I brought in a car load of houseplants – peace lily, pothos, spider plant & such – and surrounded my immediate workspace with them. No more headaches or sore throats & it was much easier to focus with such pleasant company !
