Seed Dispersal

Discover the magic of the plant life cycle in our Seed Dispersal session. Students will examine a variety of seedheads and find out how they disperse in different ways.

Enjoy a tour through the Garden where students will see seeds disperse first hand. Students will have a chance to plant their own seeds to take home and experience the wonderful plant life cycle for themselves.

This workshop is available July to December.
