Plant NH.

A SINGLE ACT SETS SO MUCH POSITIVITY IN MOTION

When you Plant Something – the simple act of putting trees, flowers or shrubs in the ground – you not only beautify your home and community, but you also purify air and water, provide pollinator habitat, increase property values, and improve human health and well-being. That’s PRETTY and POWERFUL stuff!

Help the Environment

From pests to invasive species, your local pro retailers are knowledgeable about current environmental threats and can help you make responsible plant choices.

Beautify the Community

When you plant something at your home, your business or at local parks and schools, you are contributing to a better community. 

Nurture Mind, Body & Spirit

Being in nature or even the sight of plants, trees and flowers have all been scientifically proven to reduce stress, lower blood pressure and simply make us happier. 

Help Local Growers

When you buy plants or services from your local garden center, greenhouse, nursery, florist or landscape company, you are supporting NH economy.

A well designed landscape not only adds beauty to your home, it can help cut your water use, improve your home’s comfort and lower your energy bills all year long.

POLLINATORS

Pollinators are responsible for 1 out of 3 bites of food we take each day, and yet pollinators are at a critical point in their own survival. Increasing the number of pollinator-friendly gardens & landscapes will help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators. Take the Million Pollinator Challenge and Plant Something to help improve their health and numbers!

Pay Attention and Remember This.

 

"Being around plants helps people concentrate better in the home and workplace. Studies show that tasks performed while under the calming influence of nature are performed better and with greater accuracy, yielding a higher quality result. Moreover, being outside in a natural environment can improve memory performance and attention span by twenty percent."

--Dr. Charlie Hall, Chief Economist, AmericanHort
