Years ago when I was researching my family tree I discovered that all of my male ancestors on my father’s side were gardeners. My father didn’t really have a garden but he did keep beautiful African violets in his apartment. My grandfather had greenhouses in Winnipeg and one great-great uncle was a market gardener in England. So I guess my love of gardening comes naturally.
My point is that Father’s Day and gardening go together for me, and I suspect many of you have (or had) Dad’s with a love for all things growing.
Sunday, June 16 is Father’s Day, so if your father loves gardens, drop by Dig This during the week for the perfect garden-y gift.
