Joanna’s parents have a pretty strong marriage themselves. Later this month they will celebrate 47 years of wedded bliss after meeting back in 1969 when Jerry was stationed in Korea.
‘Happy Father’s Day to the plant daddy of all plant daddy’s,’ she wrote alongside a picture of her dad.
‘I got my love for plants from this man- he has taught me that determination and hard work with a mix of patience and grace can not only help in the garden but also with family, business and life.’

‘I had the privilege of working with him for ten years at his tire shop and he taught me about these things 1st hand,’ she continued. ‘I always thought I would take over his shop when he retired, this was at least the plan. Once I met Chip I started realizing I had some hidden dreams in my heart but was scared to let my dad down. When he got wind that I was ready for something else he quickly sat me down and told me to go for it and do what my heart was telling me to do.’
‘I’m thankful for all the things you’ve taught me Dad- you were determined and worked so hard for your three daughters, you loved us with great patience and grace.’
Her dad is probably extremely excited, as the designing duo is returning to television with their own network.
The couple announced the news during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at the end of 2018.
‘We signed a non-disclosure and it said quote unquote you can tell your mother but that’s it,’ Chip said on the show.
‘So mom, I just wanted to make a quick announcement, we are coming back to television. You are going to get to see the kids grow up, you are going to see us, well maybe a six-month delay like the rest of the world, but we are excited to be back.’
