What you'll learn in this urban gardening class:

This class will take place online. Registered students will receive login instructions.

Gardens tucked into roofs and balconies beautify our urban mosaic and connect us to nature. But every urban terrace gardener knows the challenge of dealing with conditions such as harsh sun, perpetual shade, relentless wind, and managing plants confined to containers. Learn how to tailor your plant choices for pots and planters while developing simple maintenance techniques to keep a harmonious terrace garden that's healthy and lush all season long.

Great Plants for Terrace Gardens

  • Learn how to select and maintain plants best suited for life on a terrace which presents microclimates that are much different than life on the ground. We'll cover a wide variety of edibles and ornamentals with textures and colors that offer visual interest year-round.

Potting Mixes and Plant Nourishment

  • Discover how to create the right blend of ingredients for your container plants. You'll learn potting mix recipes for different types of plants, and simple secrets for fertilizers, compost, and annual soil refreshers that will help your garden thrive.

Disease and Pest Control in Pots

  • Learn the classic signs of infections and infestations found in urban pots and planters. Get tips on how to properly clean and disinfect your containers, and other measures to control and prevent problems in your terrace garden.

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.
