Join us for a new series of courses and lectures exploring the fascinating world of plants, gardening and garden design. Botany is the study of how plants grow. The discoveries and research in this field of science underpin how we garden, farm, manage woodlands, parks & meadows.  Botany also lets us, use plants for a whole range of medicines, food, clothing, manufacturing and construction.


The evening lecture series will introduce you to some of the gardens and parks on the Wirral, each of which play an important part in the development of gardens internationally, and a closer look at the often mysterious but vital work of Botanic Gardens, explore the uses of medicinal plants and introduce you to importance of the humble seed from a gardeners and a botanists perspective. Each individual lecture is £9 (you can book all four horticultural talks for a discounted fee of £30). Additionally, our two CE Saturday one day courses offer practical gardening and design advice allowing you to get the best of your plants and garden
