Let Your Love Grow

“What we have once enjoyed we can never lose.  All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.”  Helen Keller

Your beloved pet has passed away, you chose a private cremation so you have your pet’s ashes and you are wondering what to do next. How do you memorialize such a special relationship? There are so many options and decisions to make and your mind is so overwhelmed with the grieving of your loss, it is difficult to know what to do.

“Let Your Love Grow” is a relatively new option that many people are unaware of when  making decisions about memorializing of their pet.  “Let Your Love Grow” provides the opportunity to have a living memorial of your pet, by using the cremated ashes of a loved one to nourish the plant.  A common misconception is that cremated ashes can be used by themselves in the ground, under or around  a new or existing plant or tree, and that the ashes will help the plants grow.  On the contrary, the cremated ashes on their own will not allow for the release of the nutrients which as in the pet’s ashes.  Instead of nurturing plants, the untreated ashes will actually harm surrounding plant life.  The high pH of cremated ash does not allow nutrients to become available for plant life; additionally, the high sodium (salt) content of cremated ash can harm plant life.  “Let Your Love Grow” is a specially formulated organic mixture that lowers the pH and dilutes the harmful sodium (salt), as well as releases the nutrients from the cremated ashes. Regular soil and potting soil will not do this.  Using “Let Your Love Grow” is the answer to creating a living memorial.

Creating a living memorial is actually a very simple process.  Here are the steps:

1. Select a plant appropriate for your climate and situation.

2. Mix the appropriate amount of cremated ashes with “Let Your Love Grow” (we at Rolling Acres will help you with this; both the amounts and mixing, if you desire.)

3. Plant this mixture along with your chosen plant.

4. Water in abundance to keep plants healthy.

In the grief process, many of us want to have something we can touch and see to remind us of the one who is no longer here and keep them close to us of the one who is no longer here and keep them close to us. Nothing could ever replace that life; however, selecting a plant or tree for your home or garden is a wonderful way to cherish and celebrate the special bond you have with your pet. A plant or tree is a living memorial – a way to express love that has not ended with death. the circle of life is continued when nourished by “Let Your Love Grow” and the cremated ashes.  Something extraordinary truly happens as it becomes a living symbol of the special life you shared.
