Session outline

Follow a plant from root to seed as we look at all the different stages of a plant’s lifecycle.  During your interactive session you can find out what plants need to grow, discover the parts of the plant and why each one is important, and enjoy seasonal highlights around the Garden. 

This session is a part guided and part self-guided tour.  The group will be split into two during the session so please ensure you have four or more accompanying adults.

Session length: 1 hour 45 minutes
