For the second time there was the opportunity for the citizen scientists to meet Wayne Schmitt (Botanical Garden Berlin) and Dorit Siebert to ask questions about their own observations, exchange experiences and pick up model plants. In the joint project "Pflanze KlimaKultur!“ scientists want to explore the influence of climate change on the growth phases of plants together with citizens. The Botanical Garden Potsdam hosts a public model bed since April 2022. Our model bed has developed well in its second year; many seedlings of Saponaria, first Fruits from Tulipa, Eranthis, Filipendula, Salvia and Securigera are still in bloom. Visitors are welcome!
