On Saturday, 18th May 2013, the Botanic Garden hosted a day of fun- and plant-filled activities including the hugely popular Botanic Garden Trail, seed sowing to help plant the new Genetics Garden, the famous Raspberry DNA Roadshow, Thermal Imaging and Plant Hammering! In true Scottish form, we all had a great time despite it being the rainiest of the year.
We also had a group of local schoolchildren on a special visit the day before, see photographs below, to start sowing the first seed for the Cereal Diversity Plot in the Genetics Garden.
On 17th May, 2014 we held the Fascination of Plants Day at the Botantic Gardens with activities including lumberjacking, badge making, percussive plant printing and traditional woodworking.
Photographs for 2014 event to follow shortly.
