Getting to Know Plants

The World of Plants is right on your doorstep.

With 2,500 species in its living collections, Treborth Botanic Garden is a treasure trove of exotic and rare species from around the World, as well as the more familiar species of our gardens and natural habitats in North Wales.

So whether you are a gardener who wants to know more about the science of “botany”, or you’d like to have a go at identifying the wildflowers that you see in the countryside, why not come along to Treborth Botanic Garden for a “taster session” on how to recognise some of the largest and most important families of flowering plants, in the World and in our gardens.

Signing up for this course will give you privileged access to rare native plants from Wales, ‘living fossil’ plants from the age of the dinosaurs, desert cacti and bird-of-paradise flowers from Africa, carnivorous plants and exotic orchids from the cloud forests of the Americas, and living crops such as bananas, black pepper, coffee and sugar cane.

Booking is essential. 1pm-5pm. £22.50 (£20 Concessions & Garden Members).  To book, please call 01558 667150 or visit the Garden’s Eventbrite page.
