National Plant A Flower Day

Gardeners are looking forward to spring every winter to begin to plant flowers and make the best use of their green thumb. If you are not a gardener, but you want to dabble into gardening, why not begin planting some flowers? That is something you will want to do on National Plant a Flower Day.

March 12th is the day that urges you to begin planting some flowers as it is National Plant A Flower Day. That is the day when you realize how close spring really is in the Northern Hemisphere anyway, and then you can begin looking into gardening and planting. Many people turn to flower gardening because it is a relaxing hobby, and those who take up that hobby are either retired or are in high school. Therefore, the young and the old enjoy planting flowers.

Even though March 12th is still technically winter in the Northern Hemisphere as the vernal equinox does not happen until later March, you can still plant a flower. You can get seeds of flowers where you can grow indoors. Be sure to place them by the window when you begin growing them, and you can always move your flowers outside once the weather becomes consistently warmer. And if you live in a warmer climate, you can get right to planting your flowers outdoors. You will want to do this for another reason.

According to the late botanist Luther Burbank, he said that flowers always make people happier, helpful, and better. After all, according to the late Burbank, he did say that planting flowers is sunshine, medicine, and food for the soul.
