1. Garden Maintenance: Obtain a firm basis for maintaining a garden

This subject aims to provide you with a firm basis for maintaining a garden in a healthy and presentable state.

Garden maintenance is a diverse area of study, sometimes thought of as being the mundane side of horticulture, though in fact, it is today quite technical and a very critical area of concern.

2. Hydroponics: Understand This Scientific Art Of Hydroponics

Hydroponics is the cultivation of plants by placing the roots in a liquid nutrient solution rather than in soil. Many of us, have placed a plant cutting in water and noticed that it sprouts roots and begins to grow. This is a simple form of hydroponics. Unfortunately, most plants will not sprout roots and all you get is dead stems and smelly water. This course will teach you the fundamentals of what to feed your plants and how best to do it, hydroponically. 

Soon you will understand this scientific art and the course will break down the technical terminology and guide you through the process of successfully operating your own hydroponics set-up.
