A punny card design, please?

Attention pun lovers! Plant related v-day punchline needed!

I have some plants I'm growing I'd like to give to coworkers as valentines. Given my corny punny sense of humor, I feel like the accompanying card needs a good plant themed joke. My working idea is currently "I'm glad you've grown on me" but I am sure that you clever folk can give me some extra ideas. Plant will be two-inch-tall Mother of Thousand babies.

Don't be a thorn in my side! (Wait, save that one for coworkers you don't like.)

Generic:

I dig you. (With a shovel/trowel.)
You make me horny. (Something with thorns, maybe?)
You are planted in my heart.
It would stink without you. (Something fragrant.)
Wood you be mine?

For specific plants:

I pine for you.
Lettuce be together.
We're mint for each other.
It's about thyme I said I love you.
We're quite a pear.
We are two peas in a pod.
I'm eKERNELly yours. (Corn.)
Olive you.
We are lucky in love. (Clover.)
