Growing Plants

Propagation, development and how plants help us.

We talk to them, care for them and take them for granted. In this course we will explore the structure of plants, dissect and grow them, investigate their reproduction, defence and survival.

Expect to be hands on but NOT in the allotment.

More like plant pot and hand lens. Growing plants has been linked to relaxation and reducing anxiety which can contribute to good mental health.

No prior knowledge is needed. I will use a variety of fun activities to present information, which can then be discussed and expanded upon as needed.

The course will be sensitive to individual needs and experience.

It is designed to help you to understand plants and grow them successfully.

Topics may include: Propagation and reproduction; house plants, bulbs, corms and tubers; herbs, spices and plant based medicines; germination, growth and development.
