Case Study: Horticulture *suitable for home teaching*
Produced for Future Morph, these resources include a video and a classroom activity. In the video, two First Diploma in Horticulture students show how they repot plants and describe the display they helped to produce for the Devon County show. A classroom activity encourages students to clone a plant by taking cuttings. A close look at the cuttings a few weeks later can be used to reveal which characteristics of each cutting depend on the genetic makeup of the plant and which are strongly affected by environmental conditions.
This video was created as part of the Future Morph programme from the Science Council and dates from 2008. Although historic, it is still relevant and useful today.
