How Plants Grow - The Botany and Ecology of Plants! (212-2081)
with Ernesto Sandoval, Director of the UC Davis Botanical Conservatory

Saturday, Nov 19th, 9:30am - 1:00pm

In this interactive multimedia discussion/presentation using live plants and other visual aids, participants will  better understand how and why plants live or die,
flourish or flounder in our gardens.
Have you ever wondered how plants manage their growth? Why they look the way they do? Why some are trees, others bulbs and even others annuals? Why and how is pH so important for roots and why they are a lot like humans? Maybe you've even wondered about how plants "know" to make roots when you cut off pieces to root them or the tops regrow after they have been pruned? Be prepared to ask lots of questions and ponder the inner and outer workings of plants in a comfortable, non-technical atmosphere and from a fascinating perspective.
