Join Lee as she explores the mysterious world of plants! We find out how mangroves are shaping the environment, we visit a seed bank to reveal the science behind dormancy and we find out the secrets to bruise-free avocados!

Mangroves
Dr Damien Maher from Southern Cross University reveals the vital role mangroves play in balancing the ocean's eco-system.

Seed Bank
Michael Yeo from the Botanic Gardens of South Australia explains how they're helping protect the state's most vulnerable plant species!

DIY - Herbarium
For hundreds of years' scientists have preserved plants in herbariums. Join junior scientist Jayden as he learns how to make his very own.

Fruit Bruise
Avocados are delicious, which makes it even more disappointing when they get bruised! Luckily for us, Professor Daryl Joyce and Dr Melinda Perkins from The University of Queensland are working to make this predicament a thing of the past.

Cotton Processing
Australia produces more cotton each year than anywhere else in the world; 600, 000 tones! But how does it get from the fields to the clothes on your back? As Mark Freijah from the CSIRO explains it's a little more complicated than you might think!

All that and more on a leafy green episode of SCOPE, where the ordinary becomes extraordinary!
