Saturday 7th & Saturday 14th December
11 am - 1 pm
Turn natural treasures into beautiful decorations! Explore the Botanic Garden looking for colourful leaves, seeds and pods, twigs and bark to turn into decorations for our 'Green' Christmas tree. Make spicy pine cones, frosted baubles and twig stars. Take some home and leave some hanging on our tree. You can also take a tour to explore the Garden outside and spot the well known plants that help us celebrate Christmas. If you are feeling brave, stand under a huge bunch of mistletoe and wait for a traditional Christmas kiss! Then head into the Glasshouses to find out where in the World we grow the spices that make our Christmas food tast so yummy.
The RSPB will also be on hand to help us make cool things to help the birds that live in our gardens.
Tasty refreshments will be available to buy from the Friends of the Botanic Garden and Harcourt Arboretum.
Drop-in session. Free with entry to the Garden.
