The plant whisperers

(article, Culinate staff)

Apparently, the Royal Horticultural Society has found that women's voices make plants grow faster than men's voices. Our favorite quote from the Telegraph article:

bq. The findings vindicate comments made by Prince Charles that he talks to his plants although they suggest that for maximum results he would be better off recruiting the Duchess of Cornwall.

Over at the Cookus Interruptus blog, Cynthia Lair confesses to talking to the plants in her garden and wants to know if you do the same; head over and let her know. 

(As for us, we're warming to the idea after seeing the RHS evidence.)
