Greetings worm lovers,
I was reading an old gardens world magazine and it was an interview with prince charles and he said he plays music to his plants,

Well being of Irish blood (Father was from southern ireland) I really do like the irish music and i have the irish pub music station on everyday in our office
and until one of my dogs started joining in the singing and howling at the top of her voice "I did have the the CD tapes playing away in the greenhouse.

Do you play or sing to your plants ?? And if so what????

I play these when I'm gardening. I'm not sure if the plants like it, it doesn't bother the neighbours as I don't have them too loud and it's down at the bottom of the garden.
"The plants" get selections from "the age of vinyl." 50/60/70/80s pop. Motown/Soul/Doo-Wop or Jazz standards.



In the house I "seranade the house plants" on this, my Yamaha Tyros 5, or if they're really unlucky, my tenor sax. (Our immediate neighbours are well into their eighties and deaf).

Greetings,
Im never really sure if any of these thoughts work But when in wales we did have chickens and i put a sign up naming the hen house

"PAXO " (for those that dont know what Paxo is It's a form of stuuffing you got from the food shops and it was stuffed inside the dead bird to help induce the flavour when cooking it.
All the chicks layed well after that sign went up.:whistle::whistle::whistle::whistle:

My mum used to use paxo, could get sage and onion and I think parsley and thyme.

I play music all of the time and sing to it, especially if it's the carpenters.
Just found a video on YouTube about them, it's 2 hours long in 2 parts.
Got all their albums and 2 compilations.

I have three carpenters albums.

Close to You

Now and Then

A Song For You.

I've a lot of albums from that era, Motown etc,. But several of a varied selection of female singers.

Carol King, Carly Simon, Ann Murray, Carol Bayer Sager, Crystal Gayle, Denise Williams, Gloria Estefan, Rita Coolidge, Phoebe Snow. etc.,

Probably half a dozen of Carol King's and the same number of, in my opinion, the best female singer of that era, either on record or singing live. Linda Ronstadt.

Of Jazz singers, they say of Sarah Vaughan, was "Miss Perfect Pitch."

Linda Ronstadt was pop's equivalent.

I like Carol king,Crystal Gayle, Carly Simon. A lot of other ones, got a few of George Michael, Queen.
Didn't know much about Pink floyd until i was married, but they're great.

It's not just the music it's when i listen to Karen Carpenter and how she sings it, that's why I always listen and watch her all the time,she's amazing.

I never got to see her in concert, but i did see Cilla Black at Coventry in the 70s.

I prefer the original

I like the original too. It forms part of my "Motown, 45rpm collection" in one of my jukeboxes.
Although not strictly all "Motown" studios records, but recordingsof the same genre and era.

It's arranged in alphabetical order of artists' christian names or the name of the group. (That's just "me.")

Linda Ronstadt has duetted with Smokey Robinson on occasions and she recorded the "B side" of that record too.

Sad that since she developed Parkinson's she's had to give up singing.
