    The true difference between The Greenery and bargain box store plants.

    The main assumption made is that The Greenery Difference = $. When comparing different plant brands, Jay DeGraff the owner of The Greenery, doesn’t deny there is a small $ difference, but clarifies the reasons why. We spent an hour and a half talking about this subject, but I will try and sum it up using the 5 W’s.

    Nature vs. Nurture

    Diagnosing Your Inner Gardener

    If you have never been involved in a Nature vs. Nurture debate, then consider yourself lucky. It is a debate founded on the scientific theory of Nature (think of this as your biological make-up) vs. Nurture (the environment and experiences that are part of your daily life) and which one is more influential in your life. Typically, this debate ends either in a beat down given by the biologically stronger individual OR psychological abuse performed by an individual trying to prove their theory is the right one. I digress. I am not going to discuss this topic in the traditional way, and I am not trying to psychoanalyze gardening. I am just merely someone who loves to look at gardening in a different way.

    Plate your Heart Out!

    Bake your heart out this holiday season and put it on a plate…

    I think my neighbors and friends will prefer this treat rather than ANOTHER box of See’s candy or plate of cookies. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some sweets but sometimes enough is enough! Let’s work together to be guilt free this holiday season.

    Ornamental Love

    by  • November 27, 2016 • 0 Comments

    I want you to imagine the individuals that touched your life this year…

    Doctors, Nurses, Coaches, Teachers, Veterans, Farmers, Mothers, Brothers, etc. We all have someone to be thankful for!

    Start out their holiday with joy by giving them “ornamental love” for them to hang on their tree. It is a way to tell them how much you appreciate them, just by doing what they do best.

    The Greenery has many themed Christmas trees adorned with ornamental love.
