Landraces on display in Scottish botanic garden

We have sown ancient landrace varieties such as bere barley, which was probably grown in Scotland before the Vikings arrived, alongside modern crop varieties, to illustrate this variation. As the summer progresses the consequences resulting from different selections of these grasses will become clear.

That’s at the University of Dundee Botanic Garden. If you go, and take some photos, we’d be glad to share them here.
