PA German Flower Lore

This colorful placard is posted at the Kutztown Folk Festival. This annual event is held the first week in July. (June 30 - July 8, 2018)  It runs for 10 days and features artisans and crafters of PA German heritage. We organize the herb garden for the event and have a booth as well. Not saying "Thank You" for a plant is a big deal around here as they won't grow or flower.  Do you do that as well?

I have never heard this. Interesting!

My grandmother often told my mother not to thank her for the plant starts she gave her...that they wouldn't grow. :)

That's a new one for me!
