There is a saying that ‘blood is thicker than water, meaning familial bonds are stronger than bonds of friendship or love. And why won’t we- our family are the first people we spend our childhood with. They are the ones that teach us our values, and give us all our necessities and wants. They are the ones we lean on when things go awry.

And that’s why strengthening our bond with them is always important. We should spend time, effort, and energy to keep our relationship flourishing- similar to what we do for our gardens. We should also plant good seeds (e.g. funds for the future) for the benefit of everyone in our family.

In this article, we’ve listed quotes about gardens and family, and plant good seed quotes to help strengthen your bond with your family.
