Digging deep into plants? We offer botany programs across four key areas: plant identification, plant structures, horticulture and photosynthesis.
Our educational experts will design a program for your group’s needs based around the following modules:
- Plant identification – Explore classification, major Australian families, herbarium specimens, microscope dissections and how to use keys.
- Plant structures – Investigate seeds, leaves, stems and flowers with a microscope to understand the strategies plants use to grow and survive.
- Horticulture – Find out how our horticulturalists manage the Gardens – from the pre-treatment of seeds to sowing, aftercare, transplanting and cuttings.
- Photosynthesis – Learn the ins and outs of plant respiration and why we need plants to survive.
