American Sign Language: "plant"
"A plant," spring-time, bush, garden:
Note: If you do the sign "plant / spring / bush / garden" using only a
single movement it would tend to mean "GROW."
Note: When signing "GARDEN" I tend to sign "GROW" (using a small
movement) and then shift the sign location to the right a couple inches and
sign "GROW" again. That shows more than one plant growing.
Some people feel the "initialized" version of "plant" is not an ASL sign.
I'm going to show it to you here so you can recognize it. I suggest
you use the "plant / spring / bush / garden" version (above) instead of the
initialized version. Also see the "spring"
PLANT (initialized version)
Rub your fingers together as you move your hand forward--as if dropping seeds
into a furrow.
