Festival of Plants 2016 - plan your day

The annual Festival of Plants at the Botanic Garden seeks to showcase and share the extraordinarily rich plant sciences research scene in Cambridge and the region, combined with must-see plant stalls, family activities, folk music and pop-up food stalls.

How do plants make their organs? Can you grow a plant in a computer? Pop into the Pop-Up Plant Science marquee to see dynamic demonstrations; take one of our expert tours or drop-in to listen in to some bite-size science in our Talking Plants Tent.

So whether it’s getting advice on which plant goes where or how to home compost, discovering the inner workings of flowers, picking up some unusual plants for the garden, or checking out the carnivorous plants with the kids, there’ll be something for everyone at the Botanic Garden’s Festival of Plants.

Festival of Plants is supported by CambPlants and the Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University.
