Astro Arabidopsis. Arabidopsis is always discovering new scientific frontiers. In fact, Arabidopsis was the first plant to flower and make seeds in space!
Wayfaring Wheat. Like arabidopsis, wheat has been to space! Click here to watch a short video of wheat & arabidopsis growing in the international space station.
Cosmic Cowpea. Cowpea hasn’t been to space… yet… But because it grows tasty leaves very quickly, NASA has considered growing cowpea in space to feed astronauts. Fingers crossed cowpea!
Visit and colour our beautiful garden and glasshouse.
Leaves, leaves, leaves!! They come in all shapes and colours and are different from plant to plant, and can change within a plant as it ages, adapt to the environment or defends itself animals that eat them. You can find more about leaf shapes here.
