Have you ever wanted to know more about how the plants in your garden grow? Well now you can. This is a basic botany course looking at how plants grow and develop. During the day we will be looking at the structure and function of roots, stems, flowers and leaves and, most importantly, transferring that knowledge into practical advice on how best to care for our plants. This is going to be a fun day with lots of practical activities; no prior science knowledge is required.

Time: 10.00am – 4.00pm

Please arrive at 9.30am for a prompt 10.00am start.
