Plant Day 2017 – a great success

May 19, 2017 4:10 pm

We greatly appreciated being asked to participate in the Royal Holloway, University of London event to mark Plant Day 2017. The day was aimed at Year 7-9 school children with pupils attending from three local schools.

Our presentation consisted of a slideshow showing the history of the company and how plant breeding has been central to our establishment and continued success as the leading independent seed company in the UK.

 

 

 

 

Interaction with the pupils was initiated by asking then to try to identify which vegetable is grown from which seed.

  

Then pupils were encouraged to assess radishes for condition and uniformity to help them understand the process of selection.
