The Fascination of Plants Day is a fantastic opportunity for you to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of plants. We encourage you to organise plant-related community events to showcase the fascination and importance of plants and plant science.

See our FoPD 2017 Success Stories for ideas of events that you can organise in your area.

Plants are unique organisms. They can produce sugars just from sunlight, carbon dioxide and water. This ability to directly synthesize their own food has enabled plants to successfully colonise, adapt to, and diversify within almost every niche on the planet. Biologists estimate the total number of plant species to be about 250,000. Plants are the primary producers of biomass providing animals and humankind with food, feed, fiber, medicine, chemicals, energy, purified air and an enjoyable landscape. So join us to celebrate the Fascinations of Plants of 18th March 2019!
