Meet the Family

We'll have hand lenses out and simple keys and sacrificial flowers for you to pull apart to work out which plant belongs in which family.
Best plant families for this time of year include Leguminosae (bean), Umbelliferae (carrot), Compositae (daisy), Lamiaceae (mint) and Cruciferae (crucifers) and with the mild winter promoting growth, there's lots to see.
