Half of Brits speak to plants

More than half of British gardeners talk to their plants.

Research has revealed 51 per cent of Brits have chats with their plants, with British retail chain B&Q appointing "plant whisperers" to do the same for the shrubs they sell to ensure they stay in good health.

Three employees in a branch of the chain in Southampton have been appointed to speak to the greenery full-time, led by horticulturalist and botanist Tim Clapp.

Previous research by The Royal Horticultural Society indicated encouraging conversations have a positive impact on garden growth.
