Hi All:
Started a thread on this book a while back. This is an "update". Been fighting w/PhotoShop Elements so I might upload .jpegs of future offerings on seed exchange, which has kept out of my favorite forums for a while.
Weezie asked for a summary. Without have read every word, I am still skeptical Duh
The thesis that plants subliminally communicate w/each other & w/humans is not demonstrated to my satisfaction.
The authors cite numerous studies in the US & Europe--primarily former USSR--using controlled scientific techniques and sophisticated equipment which purport to demonstrate that plants do indeed communicate w/humans. Hard to accept.
Admittedly, we are all God's children and I can more readily accept as a matter of faith that on some non-conscious level there might be inter-species communication, than I am willing to accept the results cited in this book.
Facinating reading nonetheless.
PS: Mary--my "red" sedum are still basiclly green; they were supposed to be red by now.

Speaking as someone who has pet deer in gun season, while armed and in the woods --- ask me why I don't hunt any more

My beans didn't tell me they needed to be weeded any more then the weeds told me to kill the beans! The beans did not appreciate me pulling the weeds but they thrived none the less.

Why do birds land on me? Seriously, why do bird land on me?

Is it the red hair?

My Cedar tree told me that plants do NOT communicate with humans in ANY way whatsoever. Hold on, he's calling me. He wants me to bring him a bucket of plant food. Gotta go! Duh

My Mom grew up on a farm; she was a gentle person and loved animals. I remember Bluejays (not the sweetest of birds) would swoop down and eat out of her hand. One of them actaully landed on my then 3yr old's head and rested awhile. Neither one of them had red hair.

I grew up in the city; birds never landed on my noggin in my youth. The few green things around were too busy thirsting for moisture to say anything or if they did, I was too self-absorbed to hear what they were saying.
