Let’s face it, gardening can be pretty daunting. All those Latin names, the bugs and blights that can attack your plants just when they are looking their prettiest. How does anyone manage to grow anything?
Part One of ‘How to be a gardener’ will explain all that. It’s not magic, it’s common sense. I can’t promise you a copper-bottomed guarantee, but I can help you to learn how to avoid the pitfalls and make the most of what you’ve got.
This online resource, prepared in collaboration with the Royal Horticultural Society, will bring life to your learning. There will be eight modules in all. You can work through them, or simply dip in, it’s up to you. The modules cover everything you need to know to give you a great start in gardening.
I love gardening because it is the stuff of life, and it still gives me a thrill to sow seeds and grow plants. Enjoyment is what this course is all about.
