It’s Take Your Houseplant for a Walk Day!

In case you didn’t know, 27th July is Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day — crazy holiday cooked up by American couple Thomas and Ruth Roy, to encourage garden lovers and plant enthusiasts to go out for a stroll with their favorite house plant.

If you want to go all out with your plants, then gather all of your neighbors, friends, and family to parade these beautiful plants around the block. Perhaps you can have judging and prizes for best greenery, most flowery, tallest plant, smallest plant, most lush, and best of show.

For those who find this concept a little strange, there are more conservative ways to get involved. Plants grow throughout their lives, and you can use this day as an excuse to re-pot any plants that might be getting a bit big for their abode.

You can take your plant for a walk to a new location within the house, perhaps one where it might get more sun. And if you don’t own a houseplant, there’s no better day to bring one home and introduce it to your family.
