Botanical University Challenge

Your bonus for ten and no conferring…. when and where was the first Botanical University Challenge held? 

The brainchild of Dr M and Dr John Warren, several universities from all parts of the country came together in an enjoyable and entertaining event held in 2016 at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew in London with James Wong as Chairman.

This second Botanical University Challenge will celebrate botany, botanists and the beauty and importance of plants in the 21st century.

University teams will compete for the coveted trophy by answering questions on plant-related topics.

Date:        Wednesday 20 February 2019

More details to follow soon.
