Chemicals are often portrayed in a very negative way in advertising, marketing and by the media, with some products being promoted as being “chemical free”. However, chemicals are the basis for all life and everything around us is made of chemicals. This couse will delve into the fascinating world of plant chemistry, looking at the chemicals made in plants that provide the colouration, aroma and taste of familiar and unfamiliar ornamental and edible plants and showcase how this chemistry helps the plant to survive, thrive and reproduce. You will also have the opportunity to experience some of that chemistry yourself, using your own senses of taste, smell and sight.
