The Importance of Garden Plants
In this article, we will be looking at plants and how they can benefit us. To some people, plants are just plants and nothing else, but if they were to really do research on plants they will be amazed by just how much we depend on plants both humans and animals.
In the animal kingdom, animals such as cows, chickens, sheep, etc… depending on seeds and hay as foods that all come from plants.
When it comes to humans how do we benefit from plants and can we really live without them? I believe just as plants are important to animals they are valuable to us as well.
Here are some plant facts that you may not know.
1. A study was done many years ago in a hospital with two patients. One patient was put in a room where there were no windows just the wall to look at while the other patient was also put in a room but the only difference was this patient’s room had a window that overlooked a beautiful garden.
The patient’s room that had the garden view recovered much faster than the patient who only had the wall to look at. It is so amazing the mental effects garden plants can have on a person’s mind.
