The planning that goes into creating a beautiful garden is wasted if the soil is poor. Learn about soil structure, fertility, and water availability to understand what happens underground. Through lectures, discussions, and labs, learn to improve the soil with amendments and other techniques. Students receive a copy of the BBG handbook Healthy Soils for Sustainable Gardens and should be prepared to dive into the science of soils.

This course is one of eight required for the Certificate in Horticulture—a program is designed for people who plan to pursue a career in the horticulture industry and for highly motivated home gardeners who want an in-depth understanding of plants and gardening. For more information, please visit the Certificate in Horticulture webpage.
