Event description
Meet living fossils and lethal killers, giants of fire and ice, and the plants that fed the dinosaurs.

About this event

The conifers and their allies have long been overshadowed by their upstart flowering cousins, but these ancient plants still flourish as some of the largest and oldest of all living things. Meet living fossils and lethal killers, giants of fire and ice, and the plants that fed the dinosaurs. From the mysteries of the taiga forest, the greatest and coldest of earth’s land ecosystems, to the humble Christmas tree that graces our homes, conifers are part of all our lives in ways we may not even realise. Find out more at the Gardens this December..

Please note that for now the glasshouses remain closed to the public, so our tours will take place outdoors.
