Seed Collection and Conservation
Date: Saturday, August 28, 2021
Time: 10am - Noon ET
Staff: Amanda Wilkins, Leigha Henson
A seed is one of the most incredible aspects of a plant. It contains the genetic potential of the parent plants, and the outcome is something completely different than anything that came before (well, in most cases!). Join Garden Curator Amanda Wilkins on a virtual walk through JLBG observing and collecting seeds, and learn how to analyze, clean and store various types of seed. JLBG collects seed from more than 7,000 taxa every year, so there is always something new and exciting developing in the Garden.
