There's not much glory to be had in the running of a retail nursery. Unless, that is, you derive pleasure from knowing that more plants are in more homes, sprucing up the decorations and livening up the room or garden. Of course, that may be exactly what you're hoping for as a nurseryman; if that's the case, you've got glory aplenty. So...we hope that works out for you.
