Chris Moore, known to all of DG as BuriedTreasures passed away on April 5th, 2011. A long-time member of DG, Chris joined us on February 5th, 2003 and was active in the Florida Gardening Forum and the specific forums pertaining to tropical plants. He was always willing to teach others how to identify, care for, and propagate their tropical plants.
He had a keen eye for garden design and enjoyed helping others plant or remodel their outdoor spaces. Many DG members can thank him for the lovely gardens they now have and he leaves a legacy of stunning outdoor spaces around the world.
I was saddened to hear this news yesterday and send my deepest condolences to his family. Chris was a longtime loyal supporter of DG and always willing to share his knowledge with others. We'll miss him.
I am surprised to see what a young man Chris was. I got the most beautiful selection of Caladiums from Chris. We loose a great garden source with his passing.
Prayers and affirmations for his family.
I am so sad to hear this, Chris and I had many, many talks years ago. He dropped out for a bit but came back and I was sure glad to see him back...now I've dropped out for a while and find this out...I will keep his family in my prayers.
I'm sorry to hear this sad news. I purchased some adeniums from Chris that are flowering now and doing beautifully well. He sent out an email in March, 2010, which talked about business mainly, but he also said this:
"Such an odd winter, I could ramble on further, but will cut it out for now. For Dave Whitinger, THE DAVE, from www.davesgarden.com, I offer the best of wishes in your latest endeavour, Cubits. You've been an honest supporter of BT during both up and down times, and I will always appreciate your honesty and integrity. You saw to it that we were in the top when we earned it, and weren't when we didn't. You are truly a leader and inspiration to the entire gardening community first, and industry second. My heart felt applauds for yours, Trish's, Terry's, Melody's, and the thousands of others dedication to that community.
