More better...

Sinningia 'Li'l Georgie' with 14 flowers grown by Jon Lindstrom
More better…

      New Year’s resolutions are always about improving------ more better!

      More better, of course, should be correctly said as best.  Good, better, best.  It’s worth striving for the best but it’s an elusive goal.  I want to grow plants better than last year. And next year, I will want to grow them better than this year.

      Plant growing is my ‘Art’.  Art as described by Seth Godin in his new book, The Icarus Deception.     What Seth is preaching is that ‘more better’ is not going to get us anywhere.  What we need is ‘Different’------- better ‘Art’.

     He says that  making average products for average people is no longer the best use of our time.

      Sinningia ‘Li’l Georgie’ is my ‘Art’ project.  Jim Steuerlein created it and shared it with the World.  My guess is that every Miniature Garden needs ‘Li’l Georgie’.

      It is the best miniature flowering plant.  If plant lovers agree, then the Art will be complete.
