Understanding which plants are appropriate to plant in appropriate locations will ensure that you have a thriving garden and the money and time that you spend on the plants are not wasted.
As you progress through each lesson; you will be provided with a range of ways you can expand your learning. By choosing what tasks you do and don't undertake; you can expand in areas that interest you most, and skip areas of less interest.
