About This Class

I know when I started out doing my garden, I found the world of planting a labyrinth of one disaster after another. To start with, plants are not the cheapest things in the world, and if you don’t know what you’re doing with them, buying plants can become a large expense – especially if you end up killing them! Secondly, when you buy a plant it looks one way, but after a few weeks or months of growing, it can either grow completely out of control or, worse, it can die.

Over the years, after a lot of trial and error, I have learnt a lot about which plants to buy at which times of year, and how to care for them so that you end up with a beautiful floral display throughout the year.

This is a course to give you some ideas about simple, easy to care for plants and grass care that will make your garden into the envy of your neighbourhood and won’t require hours and hours of hard work.
