Big things grow from little things

Big things grow from little things

Four years ago, I gave a small potted succulent as a Christmas gift to each of my colleagues at work. I wanted to share something that I loved with them and something that they could put near their office window or bring home.

Last year, I received an email from a colleague who had already retired from work and his name is Bob. He sent me the above photo with an email saying:

“You may remember 2 christmases ago, you gave us each a small succulent. I thought it was a rather nice gesture. I re-potted mine and have included a photo with the original container sitting on the edge of the pot in the foreground. Thought you’d like to see how big things grow from little things!”

I was very touched after reading his email and at that time I had no idea that I was going to set up a business around plants as gifts a year later! Bob has essentially described the meaning of our business which is to “plant the gift”.

Bob, I dedicate this blog to you!
