Course Description

Our Master Gardener Courses are Online, Independent Study Courses.  Students work at their own pace and have 6 months to complete all course assignments and quizzes. 

What You Will Learn

In this class, you will merge your gardening experience with the knowledge you have acquired throughout the program. You will begin your journey into areas of specialist expertise and explore the most classic of garden compositions - container plantings. We will then learn about that green backdrop to garden art, the lawn and examine the cultivation of 'food from the heart' - fruits and vegetables.

  • Container Gardening
  • Lawn Care
  • Fruit Gardens
  • Vegetable Gardens

Testimonials

"It really pulled together so many practical points of gardening. I learned so much from this course. I also had a good laugh at how many things I have been doing wrong these last few years(in the garden) and look forward to reaping the rewards of correcting these practices."

"I loved this course and I have found this series (the four courses) such an amazing package!"
