I'm serious I once heard that Prince Charles talks to his plants and while gently persuading my sweet peas to be nice and grow for me outside, I wondered if was just me that was bonkers or is it a gardening thing??
Is that the scientific approach Edd
Well, I tell them they're looking gorgeous if they are, or try to be encouraging if they're not, and cuss at the deep rooted weeds as I get them out, so I reckon that you and HRH are in good company
Oh I talk to the plants all the time, and my trowel, the toaster, washing on the line...
They're the only ones that'll listen!
I'm with you Clarington, I talk to inanimate objects all the time too (and curse occasionally when they get in way and/or I stub my toe on them) But I talk to my plants as well, all the time. OH thinks I'm off my head and to be honest I don't know if it makes a blind bit of difference, but I'm not going to stop talking to them just in case they really can hear me!!
Well, I'm so relieved it isn't just me I also speak to inanimate objects, especially when in the way, but I wasn't go to admit that until someone else did
It's okay Tracey, I'll be the first one to admit to being quirky!
Do some people not talk to their plants?
few and far between I reckon nut
Of course. It would be impolite not to.
Sometimes they answer back!
Yes. It's when you hear them talking to you you know you're in trouble.
