    Plants are closely connected to other organisms on Earth. Besides being extremely significant in economy they are much useful to human beings as well. Nevertheless, they are frequently neglected and overlooked in nature. Teachers want to transfer the biologic knowledge with the highest degree of quality, thus the research intends to identify those plants which are more interesting in pupil's eyes and would be logical to include in the subject curriculum. There were six primary schools from the Notranjska and Primorska regions involved in the study. In total, 504 pupils of four age groups took part in the research (pupils in grades six, seven, eight and nine). The data were collected with a anonymous questionnaire with seventeen closed question. According to the pupils, who expressed their interest in as much as nine subjects out of fifteen, it was established that they find useful plants interesting. Three hypotheses were determined. The first one assumed younger and older pupils are interested in different useful plants. Thanks to statistically significant differences in eleven out of fifteen subjects, the statement was confirmed. The second hypothesis claimed girls being interested in different useful plants compared to boys. This assertion was partially confirmed since six statistically significant differences aroused in the matter. Girls show more interest for all six subjects where differences were identified. The last one, in which it was assumed that pupils from various primary schools would show similar interest towards useful plants, was also partially confirmed due to three statistically significant differences when answering the questions dealing with the subject.
