POLLINATION AT THE CALYX 15 October 2017

Royal Botanic gardens celebrated 200 years.

In the plant world, colour is the essential ingredient for pollination. Watch as The Calyx is transformed into an ever-changing kaleidoscope of colour in the new, free floral display Pollination.

Curated by the horticultural team at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, the display features a collection of plants and flowers showcasing the role colour plays in natures magnificent act of pollination.

Garden beds of vibrant coloured orchids, daisies, gardenias and lilies are set against the backdrop of the display hero -the green wall.

The wall, the largest of its kind in Australia, standing at 6 metres high and spanning 50 metres, showcases the Pollination theme with Dicondra, Syngonium and Heuchera.

Pollination at The Calyx is open 15 September 2017– 29 July 2018

Again we went as Marshals though this year I did manage to do some demonstrating turning. Also spent far too much money on a mini tool kit and other useful things.

Jessica had her carer, Rada with her so I was fairly free for the day.
