Flowers – the inside Story
29 April 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pmFree
In the fifth of our Creative Garden Sunday morning workshops, Cat and Doug will be looking with you at flowers’ internal structures and the clever ways they attract the required assistance to ensure pollination whether they are pollinated by wind, bee, moth, butterflies, birds or beetles.
We will also see what changes happen inside the embryo sack when pollination is successful, leading to seed formation.
Then to finish off we will consider different plants’ strategies for seed dispersal.
These Creative Garden sessions are a great mix of hands on learning and plant science. Show up just before 11am, dressed in warm clothes you don’t mind getting mucky, and sturdy boots and shoes. If you have gardening gloves, bring them along. If not, we can lend. Most of these sessions are FREE * but so we know you are coming, please do book below. For Hanging Basket Making on Sunday May 27th, we make a modest charge of £15 (£12 concessions) to cover the planted baskets that you take away with you.
