Flowering Plants Speed Post-Surgery Recovery

TheGardenLady had recently written a column about some of the benefits
of plants.

She recently read, in Science Daily, the results of a study done at Kansas State University published in the October 2008 HortTechnology that  showed that hospital ” patients with plants in their rooms had significantly fewer intakes of pain medication, more positive physiological responses (lower blood pressure and heart rate), less pain, anxiety, and fatigue, and better overall positive and higher satisfaction with their recovery rooms than their counterparts in the control group.”

TheGardenLady feels that plants in one’s house or rooms has beneficial
effects on their owners and those living with them whether they have had surgery or not. So, bring potted plants into your rooms!
