Full-Service Plant Hospital – Indoor Plant Specialist
We sat down with Wanda for a quick interview –
Why do you do what you do?
“I was a plant lady before I started my business. When I was laid off and found those dead plants, I knew I had to do something. I have been given the name “Plant Whisperer” because of my ways with the plants.”
How did you get into this profession?
“I wanted to give locals a bit of nature everywhere they went. Now i help many businesses with their plants and upkeep. I like to educate locals on the caring of plants. Empowering them to do it for themselves.
Being a gardener who works directly with many people, we asked her what is the most unusual situation that ever happened to you on the job?
“Over the last year, more often than none, I’ll have locals ask me how to care for certain plants. They would be receiving them from recently deceased loved ones that have been caring for them for years. It’s weird but it is a way for them have something of theirs to remember them by. “
If you could share one tip with the readers for choosing a plant service, what would it be?
“I am a full-service plant hospital. You bring me your sick plants and I will do my best to revive them. We also do on sight estimates. We want to keep people healthy through plants. “
