Glory

Nope. Very little glory, if any at all. You grow or bring in plant material that the retail nurseries or landscapers want and deliver it as instructed. The clientele is not nearly as grateful for what you do for them as they should be. Marketing new varieties of plants is fun, but risky. If the new varieties make it big, the retail nurseries or landscapers get the credit. Heck, no one really knows where the plants in their gardens and landscapes come from. The color and fragrance of the flowers that come and go, a bit of fall color, and the vibrancy of baby plants can be glorious to those who work with it all, but go unnoticed to everyone on the outside.
