Plant Appreciation Day

aster, plant, apreciation, day

Date When Celebrated : Always April 13

Today is Plant Appreciation Day. Plants are our friends, our counterparts. We breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. Plants take in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. Why, you could say its a marriage born heaven, or at least the garden of Eden.

Today is a perfect opportunity to get closer to the plant world. Pamper your indoor plants. Don't have any? Well, what are you waiting for? Go out and buy some. This special day falls in the spring, a perfect time for you to plant outdoor plants. If you are not yet a gardener, now is the time to start a relaxing and rewarding, lifetime gardening hobby.

Learn all about gardening and all of your favorite plants at The Gardener's Network.

Origin of "International Plant Appreciation Day":

money, tree, plant, appreciation, day

There isn't a lot of documentation on this special day. Or research only found reference to this day in the 2000's. We did not find the originator of this special day. 

This day is referred to as an "International" day. However, we did not find any UN resolution or other proclamation ordaining it as an International day. We suspect the originator wanted everyone around the world to appreciate plants and their importance to us.

Flower of the Day: Celosia

Recipe of the Day: Peach Cobbler
