Captivating Conifers Course

Conifers are a fascinating group of plants, including cedars, firs, hemlocks, larches, pines and spruces.

During this course Growing the Future’s Science Officer, Dr Kevin McGinn, will introduce the key features used to identify different conifer families and species and will explain the origins of some ‘dwarf’ garden conifers.

The course will begin in our teaching lab, moving on to a tour of conifers in the Garden’s living collections. Beginners and improvers welcome.

Booking is essential. 10.30am-3pm. £35 (£32 Concessions & Garden Members) which includes entry to the Garden following your course.  For more information, including how to book, please call 01558 667150 or visit the Garden’s Eventbrite page.

One space for each adult course will be fully subsidised and candidates can apply to the Growing the Future Project by referral letter from a GP or registered charity to gtfadmin@gardenofwales.org.uk. Offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
