Botany for Gardeners

Students learn about botany for gardeners in a classroom at Mt. Cuba Center.

Have fun with botany! Understanding how plants grow and develop, how water and nutrients are taken up and distributed, and how leaves, flowers, stems, and roots function are key to becoming a successful gardener. Discover intriguing relationships between plants and pollinators, how seeds and fruits form, and why plants grow toward the sun. Develop basic plant identification skills and learn the reasons for using scientific names. You will be amazed at what goes on in the plants that live all around us.

This program takes place in-person at Mt. Cuba Center on two Wednesdays, February 8 & 15, 2023. The Snow Date is Saturday, February 22, from 10:00 am – 2:30 pm.
