Sandi Hillermann McDonald, president of Hillermann Nursery and Florist in Washington, Missouri
Dear friends,

      I just got home from the IGC (Independent Garden Center) show in Chicago. It was a fantastic trip full of meetings, education and trade show vendors.
      Gardening for nature, and letting Nature heal us is becoming a strong concept. I have always said that “Plants can live without people, but people CANNOT live without plants!” Put this into perspective - plants clothe us, feed us, medicate us, shelter us, and nurture us. Plants are taken for granted and my goal is to change that thought process. Notice the world around you and see how much you actually are touched by plants and nature. You will be glad you did! 

Enjoy life, smell the flowers and soak up all you can!
Plants for Sleep…

      We were contacted by Sleep Help asking if they could do a guest post on our blog. And I AM EXCITED TO INCLUDE THIS BELOW. I have suffered from sleep apnea for better than 15 years now and appreciate the educational information they share below. Houseplants can help. Enjoy this article!!! - Sandi
