Plant Day 18 May
Plants are fascinating

From tiny seeds planted in the soil, an array of wondrous green possibilities can arise – from small herbs to big trees, from decorative flowers to substantial crops which nourish all animals and mankind giving continued life to our amazing planet. Plant biologists estimate the total number of plant species to be approximately 250,000. Through our coordinated plant day campaign across the globe, we hope to nurture many virtual and constantly germinating seeds in the collective minds of the public worldwide with a compelling message that plant science is of critical importance to the social and environmental landscape now and in the future.
