Future garden

The Future Garden is an exploration of the reality and dilemmas posed by the artificial manipulation of plants to achieve particular commercial or aesthetic effects.  This includes horticultural techniques such as grafting, hybridisation, the development of cultivars and, most recently, plant bioengineering, all seeking to alter the naturally occurring form of a plant.

The garden is designed to raise awareness of the issues that as a society we will need to understand in the coming years if we are to understand the implications of these new technologies, at the same time showcasing a variety of commercially available Australian plants that have been developed using these techniques.
