Plant a Flower Day, aka March 12 is super important because it's all about celebrating the beauty and significance of flowers in our lives. According to National Day Calendar, “Plant a Flower Day is always on March 12th.”. It's a time when we can come together as a community and embrace the joy of gardening.    Firstly, planting flowers helps to enhance the environment. Planting flowers not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your space, but it also has several benefits. By planting flowers, you're creating a welcoming habitat for these important creatures. Flowers attract pollinators like bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, which all play a vital role in the pollination of many plants/ flowers. Rich Mar Florist says the highest pollen flowers are, “Baby’s Breathe, Sunflowers, and Dahlia.”. By creating a welcoming habitat for these creatures, we are supporting and contributing to the health of our ecosystems. 


            Not only do flowers benefit the environment, but they also have a positive impact on our community well-being. Flowers are known to increase dopamine levels in person(s). Research has shown that being around flowers can reduce stress, boost mood, and increase feelings of happiness. In an article from Psychology Today, they say “Flowers can only make you happy by triggering your happy brain chemicals.”. Their vibrant colors and delightful fragrances can instantly uplift our spirits and create a sense of tranquility.    Plant a Flower Day encourages us to beautify our surroundings. Whether it's our gardens, balconies, or indoor spaces. Planting flowers adds color(s), texture(s), and life to our environments. It creates a welcoming and inviting atmosphere for us to enjoy.    This day is an opportunity to educate and inspire others. By participating in Plant a Flower Day, we can share our knowledge and passion for gardening with friends, family, and even our communities. It's a chance to teach and learn from others about the importance of plants, the benefits of gardening, and the role flowers play in our world.    Plant a Flower Day is a celebration of nature's beauty and diversity. Flowers come in countless shapes, sizes, and colors, each with its own unique charm. By planting a different variety of flowers, we can create stunning displays and enjoy the view of nature. It's a chance to make a positive impact on the environment, nurture our well-being, and beautify our surroundings. 


Lastly, Plant a Flower Month is a great time to involve kids in gardening. The further education society said, “most children love gardening, even if it's just the simple task of watering the plants”. It's a wonderful chance to teach them about nature, responsibility, and the importance of taking care of plants, also how to respect nature and its beauty. They can have fun choosing their flowers and helping with the planting process.
