Plants know stuff

Has anyone else ever noticed the smell of freshly-weeded Dandelions?

Half sweet, half pungent: very distinctive…

So: I step out onto the newly-sprung-in-spring lawn.

I dig up every flowering dandelion.

And the next day, as if by magic, all the remaining dandelions are in flower.

I conclude that either:

  1. They’re all one single plant, or
  2. They can smell!

I thought this must be a bit ‘out-there’.

But it’s nothing compared to the latest findings:

Peas can hear water.

And bees.

and hungry caterpillars…

But the bit about growing healthier when being played Mozart remains, as yet, unproven.
