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.
