Gardeners born in April are under the sign of the flowerpot, but you're no fool. You are amiable and adventuresome; often as not, you have dirty fingers and green knees. Plants and flowers thrive under your nurturing attention. You bloom wherever you are planted, whether you live in an urban concrete jungle or sprawling farm, but a trip to the countryside refreshes you immensely and the smell of fresh-mowed grass is a sweet fragrance. Your birth flowers are the daisy and sweet pea. April's trees are walnut, rowan and maple.

Famous gardeners, horticulturists and botanists`born in April include Sir William Watson, Mark Catesby, Henry Perrine, Washington Atlee Burpee, David Grandison Fairchild, Michel Adanson, John Claudius Loudon, President Thomas Jefferson, William Bartram, Georg Joseph Kamel, John Muir, Jan Commelin, Frederick Law Olmsted, John James Audubon, Dr. Griffith J. Buck.
