Botany/Flowers for Beginners

Botany Flowers for Beginners



Tutor: Ros Bennett
Date: Tuesday 17th July - Wednesday 18th July 2018
Time: 10am - 4pm
Cost: £120

For those who are new to the study of flowers, the glorious yet seemingly infinite variety of colours and designs can seem overwhelming. This two-day course led by expert botanist and ecologist Ros Bennett, will help you understand the structure of flowers and the fascinating yet standard ways in which they differ in order to achieve their common purpose - the production of seeds and the perpetuation of the species.

It will also provide an insight into how floral design helps to group our plants into an internationally recognised classification system which in turn provides us with the means to identify and name them. The course is suitable for beginners as well as those who know many plants but would like to understand more about their botanical structure. Time will be spent in the classroom for introductory talks and some practical work but the aim is to spend as much time as possible out in the Garden amongst the plants.
