Plant care is very much about people care and there is a science behind how plants heal just by being in their presence. Horticultural Therapy is the process by which gardens and plants are used to improve both the physical and mental well-being of an individual. It has been widely recognised as an effective form of therapy since the ancient Egyptian era. Doctors would prescribe walks around the garden for patients with mental issues. Today, therapists continue to recommend plant care for people who are stressed, depressed or recovering from trauma.
