Talking to plants works!

In November last year, parts of the Johannesburg Parks region were hit by a   devastating hail storm –  large hail stones fell with a ferocious intensity.  They shredded leaves of agapanthus and arums, as well large robust trees, and reduced every impatience and begonia plant  to a bruised and damaged lone green stalk.  Of course the Pollyannas/’every- cloud-has-a-silver-lining’- chirpers all said ‘But hail has so many nutrients it will all come back’.  Cynical as ever I muttered under my breath ‘Yeah right’.  But, yet again I had to eat humble pie. The flowers have all come back with a vengeance and have provided an amazing display in Liz at Lancaster’s garden and potted plant areas.  Alick, Liz at Lancaster’s wonderful gardener said to Liz  rather bashfully: ‘I talked to them’.   Well Alick – it worked!  Thank you Alick and thank you hail!
