A new study at the University of Exeter and the Royal Horticultural Society has found that spending time in the garden is associated with sound health and higher psychological well-being.

NORFOLK, Va. — Getting out of the house without putting yourself at risk is a challenge nowadays, but your odds of social distancing are pretty good if you have 175 acres of green space to roam.

Corpse flower blooms in Cibodas Botanical Garden

The odor comes from amino acids that come out through the surface of the cob. The stench produced when the flowers bloom attracts the attention of various insects, and they come and help pollinate the plant

Jakarta (ANTARA) – A giant corpse flower (Amorphophallus titanum Becc.), reaching 291 centimeters in height, has bloomed once again in the Cibodas Botanical Garden Conservation Center at the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) in Bogor.
