Identifying conifers

Ros Bennett
Wednesday 21 November - Thursday 22 November 2018

Here at the Botanic Garden, we are fortunate to have a fine collection of this magnificent group of trees, including native and introduced conifers.

During this two-day intensive course botanist and ecologist, Ros Bennett, will help you discover how to use the basic features of cones and foliage to distinguish between Spruces and Firs, Redwoods and Hemlocks, Larches and Cedars, before learning how to identify individual species.

Simple keys will be introduced and the course will be based in our classroom but with much time spent outside among the Garden’s Conifer collection. Beginners and improvers are all welcome.
