The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performed a three-hour recital in Cadogan Hall in London last week, with 33 musicians playing pieces including Mozart's Symphony Number 40, it announced Thursday.
In front of them were more than 100 different varieties of plants and bulbs including geraniums, fuschias and perennials.
"We?ve played some unusual recitals before but this has to be one of the strangest," said the orchestra's conductor, Benjamin Pope.
"The audience was the most fragrant we have ever played to although it was slightly unnerving to see row upon row of bowed heads instead of applauding human beings.
"Hopefully the sound of classical music resonated with the plants and will result in a genuine growth spurt over the spring months."
