It’s time to water!

Despite the winter weather, it’s important to remember that watering is still essential!
Oklahoma remains in a drought, and your plants need adequate water to prevent damage and dehydration. While watering needs vary, young shrubs and trees (especially evergreens) are at the greatest risk during a winter drought. It is safe to water whenever the temperature is above freezing and the soil is not frozen.

We are heartbroken by the loss of 30+ year employee Pat Grissom. Pat was known as “the Rose Man,” and customers would come in specifically seeking his expertise on these classic flowers. Pat handled all of TLC’s rose potting and seminars for many years. He was courageous in his battle with cancer until the end.

Pat impacted so many in the TLC family during his many years in the nursery. Here are some remembrances:

“The entire TLC family is saddened by Pat’s passing.  He was the heart and soul of our nursery department for 30+ years.  Not only was he our most knowledgeable and experienced associate, his impish smile and dry sense of humor made him the favorite of all of our customers and co-workers. Pat loved to ride trains and OU football.  He would always wear his OU hat and sweatshirt on football weekends (against company policy!!).  Everyone at TLC loved Pat, and we will always have a place in our heart for him.”
– TLC Co-Owner Frank McDonald

“So sad to hear. I took one of his rose seminars when we bought our first house. He is the whole reason I knew the current rose bush at the house was diseased and why I bought 6 more rose varieties from TLC in the years after. What a great man.”

“I didn’t know his name, but as soon as I saw him I was so relieved because help had arrived!”

“He will be missed. He could talk for hours about roses.”

“We loved Pat. We always looked for him when we had rose questions. When we wanted a new rose, he would help us choose the best one for our spot. If we were having trouble with 1, he could tell us what we were doing wrong.”

“Pat helped me select an old fashioned rose to plant to commemorate the birth of my daughter. A beautifully scented peach and pink variety, ‘Abraham Darby’.”

“Pat was so knowledgeable and taught so well. I have passed on what I learned from him.”

Rest in Peace, Pat “Rose Man” Grissom.

TLC will be closing early on
January 7th
for a memorial reception for Pat.
