Love gardening and learning about new things-gardening provides an endless supply of that 😃 Live on West coast of Canada-mild temps but lots of rain!

I’ve treated myself to this beauty after successfully completing a horticulture course and exam. Woo hoo! 😊 It’s been an intense past few months doing this course while working but have learned so much and it’s the beginning of my working with a volunteer organization of wonderful gardeners. 😊😊 Now hoping to spend some time in my sad, neglected garden and get back here on GT more!

@awomanonabike @Jasonsparkes1 @christineb @gjones @rachelbrooks thanks everyone! 😊 Planting this one in a container, I’ve read/heard they can do well in that situation.

Do you plan to take any more horticultural courses?

@gjones yes, definitely, I’m loving the learning...there is another one that the Master Gardeners offer every 2 years although it is more in depth with more time needed for study/assignments so I’ll give that a think later. For now I have lots of book/website learning to keep me busy. 😊
