The Art of Gardening is intended to merge your gardening experience with the knowledge you have acquired throughout this program. To begin the journey into areas of specialist expertise, this course explores the most classic of garden compositions - container plantings. We will then learn about that green backdrop to garden art, the lawn. Lastly, we examine the cultivation of 'food from the heart' - fruits and vegetables. The course will teach you how to successfully implement these options to create the specialized landscape that reflects your interests.
