The heir to the British throne has often said that talking to plants is the secret to successful gardening. Nor does he simply chat to them. Apparently, he gives them instructions on how to thrive. That's a rather lovely image! But do the plants ever talk back? I wonder if they'd tell him (very nicely of course) to leave them be, and simply have faith that they know what they're doing. Instead of micro-managing a situation today, you can afford to relax and let everything unfold at its own speed.
