Jason's Memory Garden

Hello Mrs. Kruger,

My name is Szymon Baggs. I am 16 years old, and in 11th grade of Middleburg Sr. High School.
I live with my mom in Middleburg, Florida. My dad died 5 years ago of blood cancer.
Mom has been sick for the past 3 years. She has Chronic Fatigue Syndrom. She had to stop working last year because of her condition. She is not a person who can sit doing nothing so she started growing clivias just for our pleasure, and I have been helping her with them.
I know it sounds funny – I am a boy and helping mom with plants. I like it and wish their flowers stay pretty for longer than they do.

I would like to grow a clivia that would make my mom happy, and that’s why I am writing to you Madam hoping you let me to have some of your seeds.

Wish you the best,

Hello Carrie,

It’s Jolanta, Simon’s mother.

We received the seeds and planted them, a few weeks ago.
Thank you so much for sending them for Simon. He seems to be very excited and checks on them every day.

We have had a problem with our computer, and had to get a new one. I did it easier on me, and got a new one as Simon’s Christmas present so…..we were out of contact for over a month.

Sorry for being late.
Would like to wish you and your Family a Happy New Year.

In a few weeks, I should have some seeds of nice crosses ready for harvesting and I will send you some to plant in Jason’s Memory Garden.

Thank you again,

Simon in front of their clivias

    Simon, great to meet you. I just want to tell you that there is nothing funny or sissy about gardening. It is a man’s hobby, and the best gardeners are men (sorry, ladies!). See you on the clivia forum soon, I hope. Mike, Salt Lake City, Utah
