This course on tropical gardening is designed for beginner gardeners who are looking to start a tropical garden or to cultivate a garden they have inherited on their property. We start with the basics, such as choosing tropical plants and learning where tropical plants come from. We'll then learn how tropical plants work and what their special needs are.
Some of the more common tropical plants are reviewed, as well as information about watering, growing, protecting, pruning, and training these plants to thrive in your yard. Additionally, this course covers the basics of pest and disease control, and also discusses the ideas of organic gardening, planning an effective garden, and choosing the right garden type for your needs. You will find out how to garden effectively – even if you don't have a green thumb.
