We will look at the chemistry within those plants that we use to decorate our homes at this time of year, plus those that feature in our seasonal celebratory feasts whether as food or drink. We will also look at the chemistry of plant products that might help us to get over any seasonal over-indulgence!
After studying chemistry at both degree and PhD level and working in different roles in the pharmaceutical industry, Alison’s passion for plants got the better of her. She retrained as a horticulturist, and joined the University of Oxford Botanic Garden, eventually becoming Acting Director. Alison is now focusing on using horticulture as a conduit for science communication but also enjoys creating new gardens for plant enthusiasts.
