The Planting What Where short course will provide you with an understanding of plant knowledge that will help you select plants that are right for your garden.


Whether you are a professional or a home gardener, this course will help ensure that you are not wasting time and money by selecting the wrong plants for your location.

Plant selection is an important part of creating a beautiful and functional garden. With careful selection and well thought out planting schemes you can minimise maintenance, minimise disease and prevent over-planting. Over-planting is one of the most easily made mistakes in a garden. This is especially so for large trees that could end up being very costly to remove.
