In celebration of Valentine's Day, take a 'botanical love' themed guided walk of the Adelaide Botanic Garden with the volunteer Garden Guides.

Explore the love (and sex) lives of plants. Investigate stamens, pistols and pollen and find out how plants communicate with colour, form and scent on form fruit to entice symbiotic relationships with other plants or animals.

Discover how plants are used as aphrodisiacs and for fertility rites, hear how writers, poets and artists have celebrated their love of the botanical throughout time, and learn about how certain flowers can symbolise certain things in a posey given to a loved one!
