Tutor: Alison Foster
Date: Tuesday 19/09/2017
Time: 10.00am - 1.00pm
Price: £35

The chemistry (and some biology) of common garden plants will be explored in this morning session. The stunning rainbow of colours and array of scents influence what we grow but how often do you stop to wonder what makes those scents and colours and what benefits they have to the plants themselves? Some plants are toxic to humans and others are grown particularly for their great taste. This session will also look at the molecular basis of the taste or toxicity of commonly grown garden and allotment plants. The session will take place both in the Classroom and outside in the Botanic Garden.
