Celebrate the start of spring with our very special gardening workshop and a great introduction to the science in nature. Perfect for all budding horticulturalists, we’ll be making greenhouses from plastic bags, sowing seeds and digging into the cleverness of plants with beanstalk mazes and upside down seedlings. Take a tour of the glasshouses, create invisible plant food from common kitchen ingredients and learn how to turn a white carnation pink!

Tickets to the workshop include entry to the Botanic Gardens, so why not come and ‘pot down’ your roots for a day of gardening activity and exploration.

For information on our terms and conditions visit here.

Please come dressed for the weather as part of this activity will be outside, and make sure you advise us of any allergies.

*Ticket includes entry to the garden for one adult and one child. Additional adults to pay entry to the gardens on the day.
