From one little seed planted in soil, many things can arise: our food, feed, paper, medicines, chemicals, energy and an enjoyable landscape – pretty much everything we need to survive on this planet.

On Wednesday 18th May, join scientific institutions, universities, botanical gardens, museums, schools, farmers and businesses all around the world and take part in Fascination of Plants Day. The event seeks to plant virtual ‘seeds’ in our minds to highlight the critical role of plants in our everyday lives.
