Terry has a wise air about him that’s fitting of a lifelong gardener. Equally fitting is his approach to life—informed by experience, patience, and a keen sense of self. He grew up in a family that owned and operated floral shops across Northeast Indiana. It wasn’t until his freshman year of high school, however, when a particularly phenomenal biology teacher ignited his deep-rooted fascination with plants. That also happened to be the seminal year he met his wife. Whether or not we can credit these events with forever cementing his association of gardening with love is hard to say, but whatever the origin, the man’s heart is truly in it. His example has inspired our team since day one.
