Does talking to plants really work?


Over the winter, I had all of my prized plants moved into the garage and every time that I watered them, I talked to them and explained what kind of organic mix that I was using to feed them. They all survived the winter including my strawberry plants and all have adjusted nicely to the “full sun” situation with no evidence of stress. Good organic potting soil probably helped..
I talked to them about the “bare root technique”, that would be the way that they would be planted in the ground next growing season and so far-so good!
Yes, talking to plants WORKS when you combine that with a rich organic regiment. Why it works, I cannot explain that, but it DOES work. Give it a try and see what happens!
The local Squirrel loves it! {chuckle}

Oh I think it helps, not sure whether its myself or the plants who get the most benefit here, I even go so far as apologizing to mine if I accidently tread on one whilst working around them,lol.......
