IF YOU want to be the wizard of the garden, make come changes to the music you listen to.
Because greenfingered garden guru Chris Beardshaw is recommending a new technique for bigger blooms – blast your plants with heavy metal.
Beardshaw played Black Sabbath, classical music and Cliff Richard to two seperate greenhouses – with Ozzy and his rock and roll doctors producing sweet leaf, and classical moderate results while all of the Cliff RIchard foliage died.
He is paranoid that there was some sabotage involved with the Cliff greenhouse…
The results show that using rock as a nutrient appeared to create larger flowers. And although the plants themselves were shorter, they were more disease-resistant.
He said: “The ones with Black Sabbath – great big, thumping noise, rowdy music – they were the shortest, but they had the best flowers and the best resistance to pest and disease.”
