Our four detectives, Farah, Isla, Mohammad and Sam, are having a sleepover in the treehouse when they notice a mysterious light coming from Isla's neighbour's garden. It looks like some of the plants are glowing! But how can this be?

Join the Detective gang as they meet a botanist and a geneticist, who will help them discover more about plants, genes and DNA.
