Scientists from Cardiff University are leading a range of exciting events for ‘Fascination of Plant Day’ which will be celebrated alongside our Orchid Day at Dyffryn. 4G coverage is uncertain so it might be filmed and uploaded later.

1345 Celebrating plants at the OSU West Campus Science & Technology Festival
The Center for Applied Plant Sciences & Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center, The Ohio State University get together to give a sneak peek of the event and discover how to extract DNA from applesauce using household supplies.

What next?

Well, you can still catch up catch up on previous events in the #BotanyLive hashtag, and we’ll be promoting them again next week. We’ll also be having a bit of a post-mortem. Personally, I’ve been surprised by how successful it has been, but I think there’s a lot of room for improvement. Hopefully next year we can do a much better job of showing off the participants.

We’d like to thank everyone who watched. Every year at our annual review we ask if there would be an audience for video. Now we have some idea of what size it could be.

Most of all we’d like to thank our participants. Every one of them is a star, giving up their time for an event that might not have worked at all. BotanyLive literally could not have happened without them.
