It’s December 2021 and time for a new series of #AdventBotany. I’ve been blogging Christmas plants with a group of colleagues for seven years now so what new plants are there to write about? This year I’m interspersing more traditional blogs with some challenges. I’ve picked plants that feature in novels set over the Christmas period – you have to work out which novel. Days 1-3 are the first mystery book. Let me know via Twitter @botanyRNG if you work out which one.
Day 2 – Ipomoea tricolor (morning glory)
Day 3 – Rosa ‘Paul Noël’
Day 4 – Allium sativum (garlic)
