Many people enjoy looking at the plants in their garden. A bunch of flowers can be a way to convey congratulations, birthday greetings, love, apologies or to express sympathy. Research has shown having plants around you is good for your health. Plants can boost your creativity. Whether it be a tree, shrub, flower, herb, vegetable or a bunch of flowers, you need more plants in your life.

How plants can benefit your health
Simply looking at plants can benefit your health. Researchers at Wageningen University in the Netherlands found dining at a table decorated with a vase of flowers puts people in a better mood. Having fresh flowers in the home has been linked with positive energy, increased happiness, more empathy and a calmer approach to life.

Plants take in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. They can help purify the air.Research shows people who have plants or a bunch of flowers in their hospital room recover more quickly after surgery. read more.

What about people who have allergies?
People who get hayfever or other form of allergic reaction to flowers and pollen need to choose plants carefully. Some may find it best to avoid plants with flowers. Others may find they don' t have an adverse reaction as long as they choose flowers with less pollen such as begonia, pansy, iris, periwinkle, geranium, salvia, zinnia, snapdragon or impatiens. There is a variety of sunflower which grows to a height of two metres which is said to be hypoallergenic. I read the pollen does not spread easily because it is too heavy.

Ways to get more plants into your life
Walk in a park or botanic gardens.
The exercise you get by taking a walk is good for you. Exposure to the plants in a park is good for your body and lowers blood pressure and stress. The beauty of plants is good for your soul.

Put flowers in your house
Plants with flowers boost creativity. Research shows flowers make people happy

Grow herbs on your kitchen window sill. You will have fresh herbs on hand to use in cooking. Squeezing a leaf of mint of thyme and smelling it will lift your spirits.

Add a pot plant or two to your decor. The size of your plant will depend on the amount of room you have. A potted palm would be great in a larger room or entrance but some houses only have space for a small plant.

Put a plant on your work desk.
Indoor plants are of great benefit in offices as well as at home. They improve the quality of indoor air by removes some pollutants and replacing some of the carbon dioxide with oxygen. As a result people have more energy, are sick less often and less likely to suffer headaches.

Eat lunch in the garden.
Looking at plants will make you feel better. The air you breathe in will be cleaner than the air inside a house which has the windows closed.

Spend time gardening. A nice garden also adds value to your house should you decide to sell. If you don't have much space outside, a collection of plants in pots still provides benefits.
