My experiments with gardening

Trying to grow a garden and get rid of the tag 'plant killer'

Want to learn gardening professionally? February 27, 2012

I know!

It is not rocket science and you do not need classes in it but but but…Any guidance is appreciated for amateur gardeners. We are pained and panicked souls..we worry at the sight of pests, spotted leaves, dying seedlings and refusing to germinate seeds.

So, coming to the point, I saw this ad in newspaper today.

The center for Extra-Mural Studies, University of Mumbai, is offering a two-month weekend course in ‘Garden Craft’ from March 17.

The course, designed for the amateur garden enthusiasts, will be taught by experienced horticulturists and garden experts. There are no age or qualification bars. The course will equip one to look after plants at home in a scientific manner. The last date of admission is Friday, March 9.

For details contact 022-26530266/022-65952761. www.extramural.org

I saw the link mentioned and the course fees is Rs 6500 for 2 months. For me it is steep but I might do it after a few months if it is available. Also the timings are saturday 3pm to 6pm and sunday 10am to 1pm. Register at Kalina.

If you are interested do take it up and let me know how it was. I would like to take it too..

      Hi Neha,

      I read the blog and I have been to Vriksha nurseries at Vile Parle. I had got basil and Jalapeño plant from there, Shaan doesnt have seeds but I bought saplings from him. It is a nice place you should visit sometime. They are open on weekends also I guess. Call before visiting for directions etc.

      About the HUB workshop, I seem to miss it all the time. Hopefully I should be able to catch it next time. Also, the article which you mentioned actually says that the workshop was in Feb 2010.

      Thanks,
      Sushma
