About Plant a Flower Day

When is Plant a Flower Day? This holiday is always celebrated on March 12

The calendar says it is mid-March, the dawn of a new gardening season. It sure has been a long time in coming. Winter has seemed endless. Plant a Flower Day has arrived. This March 12 holiday is a day to finally get a little dirt under your fingernails again. Take a few minutes to plant a flower today.

Gardening is a great hobby. It’s enjoyed by millions of people, old and young alike. It’s a hobby that virtually everyone can participate in, regardless of age, and health. Senior citizens love it, as they can garden long after they give up other hobbies and sports.

Identifying the correct date for celebrating Plant a Flower Day has proved frustrating and a bit futile. As we researched this day, we found multiple dates in March and May for Plant a Flower Day. We found no content sites defining the day and no written documentation. Amazingly, no one claimed to be the creator of this day either.

How to Celebrate Plant a Flower Day

  • If the weather is good in your area, go to your local garden center and pick out some beautiful blooming flower plants. If the weather is not yet okay for outdoor planting, keep them in your home or a greenhouse until the proper planting time in your area.
  • Celebrate today by planting or transplanting any kind of plant. It can be done indoors, or weather permitting, outdoors.
  • Start trays of your favorite flowers for transplanting outdoors later in the spring.

History and Origin of Plant a Flower Day

Our research did not find the creator or the origin of this day. There is a reference to this day as celebrated on multiple dates across multiple months. We have posted this day as March 12th, as it is by far the most common date referenced.  

Only recently, a few websites have begun to call it a “National” day. We found no presidential proclamation or act of Congress making this a true national day.
