Science Club - Plant Trichomes!

In Science Club today we looked at plant trichomes under the microscope - these are the specialised cells that produce the oil/flavour/smell in many plant species - we looked at basil, mint, sage and rosemary today so the lab smelled lovely : )

These pictures show the different forms the trichomes take - look for the spikey bits and the round blobs!
