Late Junction's playlist for plants

Tell your houseplants and indoor trees to tune in, for tracks to encourage growth and engender enjoyment in our photosynthesising friends.

Do not worry for the moment whether plants can hear, or if indeed what genre of music they like best. Just let Nick Luscombe lead you down the garden path towards an enclave of flowery, fruity, fertile sound, featuring: spoken word artist Molly Roth, the hit of the Transworld Home Horticulture Exhibit in Chicago, 1976; research project Folklore Tapes interpreting Flora Britannica, the matter of Britain; and psychedelic, electronic, green sounds from Mort Garson. Plus a Late Junction first - our own live experiment in the studio with some living basil.
