1. Interior Plant Care: Obtain The Knowledge Needed To Ensure Your Indoor Plants Thrive

Looking after those plants in the home or office to ensure they grow and produce the best effect for the home or office environment is a skill most of us wish we had. The course helps you to gain these skills and obtain the knowledge needed to ensure your indoor plants thrive.

2. Garden Design: Learn To Design The Gardens Of Your Dreams

Explore the art of garden design in the comprehensive garden designing courses. You will learn the fundamental elements of style, basic techniques and professional tricks necessary to design the gardens of your dreams.

Professional garden design is something that is inspirational and is essentially solving the various logistical problems associated with what you have to work with, where to position such items as pathways, swimming pools, tennis courts, water features, flower beds and which plants would be most suited. Good garden design adds these ingredients to create a style in keeping with the site, the house and your client's requirements.

The whole process of design begins long before you put pen to paper. Your initial job is to find out just what you have and then what you want to achieve based on this initial fact finding.

Once this basic analysis is completed, you can then move on to the fun job of preparing the design.

3. 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.
