Jim frequented April's Heart and Soul Café, often teasing her about trading plants for meals. One day, she decided to drop by and was astonished by what she saw – hundreds of plants filled his backyard. April suggested selling them, so they made 19 signs and posted them throughout the neighborhood. That was the beginning of what is now New Roots Landscaping Nursery and Antiques. What began as a hobby soon grew into a thriving business. With her knowledge of design and his knowledge and love of plants, Jim and April made the perfect team.
It was so much fun. We sold every plant in a single day.
