A keen gardener myself I can’t say that I have yet resorted to playing my plants music. Perhaps I am missing something, however, Chris Beardshaw, a gardening expert, recommends playing your plants heavy metal to make them bloom. Whilst plants seem to like heavy metal, music by Cliff Richard was not so popular as it killed all the plants in the experiment. During the experiment four greenhouses were set up and different music was played in each. There was one control house which was silent whilst the others had classical music, Black Sabbath and Cliff Richard. The plants that were played classical music grew slightly shorter, those played Black Sabbath were shorter still but had the best flowers and those played Cliff Richard died, although sabotage was suspected.
