Cambridge University Botanic Garden (CUBG), presents a 'classroom course' in the theory and practice of growing orchids with tutors Luigi Leoni and Phil Gould.
"The course in orchid cultivation and propagation aims to cover the fundamentals about this incredibly interesting and diverse plant family. This is for anyone who has a passion for orchids or has just received an orchid as a present and wants to take care of it the best way. There will be a presentation to explore the botanical diversity of orchids, and their importance through history in different cultures and science.
The presentation will also have a section about the most current knowledge of how orchids are cultivated (temperatures, humidity, growing media, fertilising, etc). Then there will be a practical session showing the plants that we have in the collection at the Botanic Garden and the way they can be propagated."
Bookings for this course will close on: Thursday 14th March 2024 and the course itself will take place on:
Saturday 30th March, 2024
10:00 am - 1:00 pm
