Backyard Botany (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

As a gardener, have you ever wondered why your plants behave the way they do? Why companion planting works so well? Or why some plants prefer shade but others full sun? This workshop will let you in on the science behind gardening. We’ll cover everything from how plants get along together (or not) to how they protect themselves from pests; how they sense the world around them to why they grow at different rates. And in a few cases, we’ll use in-class living plants and creatures as examples.

You will come away with:

  • A better understanding of plant behavior, ecology, and physiology
  • The scientific basis of common horticultural practices
  • Practical tips on gardening

Come explore the fascinating world of plant behaviour and garden natural history.
