10 Best Gardening Movies
Little Shop of Horrors
How can you go wrong with a geeky florist (Rick Moranis) who finds out his Venus Flytrap has an appetite for human blood? This cult classic has been a favorite of ours since VHS days.
The Secret Garden
The Frances Hodgson Burnett novel was one of my favorites growing up. I would imagine exploring the beautiful garden with all of its lovely flowers, just as Mary does.
Ferngully: The Last Rainforest
How many ‘80s kids became environmentalists as a result of seeing this movie? Crysta (Samantha Mathis) is a fairy who must rally all the creatures to save the rainforest from logging and pollution.
While our kids enjoyed the Dr. Seuss book, the movie really helped them understand why they should “Speak for the trees.” In this movie, the Once-ler (Ed Helms) describes how his greedy actions destroyed a beautiful and thriving environment.
The Bee Movie
Barry B. Benson (Jerry Seinfeld) is a honey bee who sues the human race for exploiting bees, after learning that humans sell and consume honey.
Believe it or not, this is an action movie about plants. Botanist Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is abandoned on Mars and he uses astrobotany to grow a garden while he waits for rescue.
The Day of the Triffids
You might think this is better suited for Mystery Science Theater 3000, but man-eating plants from outer space are no joke. Hubby and his Dad love this one. (This is the movie on the screen above.)
Dr. Robert Campbell (Sean Connery) is an eccentric ethnobotanist working in the Amazon in search of a botanical compound that will fight cancer.
Dare to be Wild
Inspired by a true story, Mary Reynolds (Emma Greenwell) takes her unconventional ideas about landscaping to the prestigious Chelsea Garden Show.
In this British comedy, hardened prisoners become gifted gardeners and enter their prize flowers in the Hampton Court Garden Show.
