The book, "The Secret Life of Plants" presents a convincing bit of work
suggesting that not only can plants sense pain, but they can sense that
you are going to inflict pain into them.
Someone hooked a plant to a lie detector and then thought about
inflicting some stress on the plant. The plants responded with an adverse
reaction as recorded by the lie detector.
What would a lawns reaction be to the thought of a mowing, or just the
sound of the mower? ;)
