Although business is needed to keep a retail nursery going, most retail nurserymen prefer the early morning when business is slow. Working with plants is much more fun than working with nasty customers. Heck, it is more fun than working with the not-so-nasty customers. Nurserymen keep a low profile and are happy to be unnoticed. The only glory in this work is the color and fragrance of the abundant blooms, the fall color of deciduous trees, and the vibrancy of all the baby plants that will eventually find new homes in gardens throughout the community. Glory be to gardening!
