How and Why Plants Live, Die and Thrive in Our Gardens (212-2080)
with Ernesto Sandoval, Director of the UC Davis Botanical Conservatory

Sat, Sep 25, 9:30am--1:30pm

In this interactive discussion using live plants and images of plants from around the world, participants will learn better how and why plants live or die, flourish or flounder in our gardens. Have you ever wondered how plants grow? Why they look the way that they do? Why some are trees, others bulbs, and even annuals? Why pH is so important for plants and how roots work? Maybe you've even wondered about how plants "know" to make roots when you cut off pieces to root them or the tops re-grow after they have been pruned? Be prepared to ask lots of questions and ponder the inner and outer workings or plants in a comfortable non-technical, and perhaps more fascinating, perspective.

Beautiful plants will be sold!
