The Science of Gardening

| January 11, 2013 | 0 Comments 

Another superb Exploritorium resource, this time investigating The Science of Gardening, a great collection of videos, and interactive activities, about growing plants.

There are three areas: Feed ~ Control ~ Bloom. The first section explores the basics, such as soil types, seeds, and the origins of some of the common cultivated crops.

In “Control”, we find out about biodiversity, growing plants indoors, and plant hybrids, whilst “Bloom” looks at pollination, the survival skills of plants, and why they spend so much effort making themselves attractive.

A fascinating resource, and well worth building in to any plans for the better weather that (surely) lies not too far ahead.
