Hi gardeners, I was wondering if I can get your expertise advice on a topic. My coworker at UMVD gave me the new Andrea Bocelli album Amore. I really enjoy listening to it when I garden now. his soothing voice places me in the right mood. Does anyone else enjoy his music?.... About the question I was told that playing classical music actually helps witht he growth of plants, has anyone else heard about this?? And more importantly does anyone else connect with me in the enjoyment of Bocelli's music when gardening?

I enjoy Vivaldi's The Four Seasons while actually doing the gardening and then, for sitting and having a glass of wine at the end of the day, maybe Cesaria Evora from Cape Verde or the Buena Vista Social Club.

I enjoy all music (except the rock & roll) while doing my gardening, and a glass of wine with the company of my loving dog...

I enjoy Andrea Boceli but when gardening mostly listen to Phil Coulter - piano one of the best.

Don't be so cynical, if listening to music makes gardening even more enjoyable then go for it. As for the plants growing better I hardly think so but if your happy and relaxed because of your music then you are probably being a better gardener, and plants will beefit from this.Cheers

I am not being cynical... as you say if it makes gardening more enjoyable to you then go for it , but the idea it makes PLANTS GROW BETTER is ludicrous.

This is a friendly chat space for gardeners, not a scientific journal. Please, lighten up a little - spring will be here soon.

I'm not sure if anyone watches a show on the discovery channel where two fellows and their teams try to prove or disprove myths, On one show they ran an experiment with music and pea plants. They tested Rock Music, Classical music, Verbal abuse, talking kindly to plants and a control group. The funny thing was that the Rock Music and Verbal abuse group seem to fair the best. Although not truley scientific and really just for fun it appeared that the stimuli did affect the plants. So for all of you music lovers and chatters... have fun.

I guess I have a long way to go when it comes to gardening, but I say....any excuse to listen to Andrea Bocelli is a good one and I figure it has got to be one of the best ways to garden!

I am a firm believer that Andrea Bocelli's music goes well with just about anything! I love his Romanza album and listen to it while I clean, garden and do just about anything.

I have no idea who Bocelli is. I'm just an old hippie chic LOL (54) that still likes to listen to rock & roll while I garden. As far as it making my plants grow, who knows?? I just know I enjoy it....

as for the scientific side, i think it's actually the vibrations from music that the plants like, therefore rock music, or certain beethoven, would provide the strongest vibration. sometimes i put the headphones from my ipod against the pots. my plants and i like tool- the best rock that is also a lot like classical in the way it is composed.
