What you'll learn

Watering is an undervalued skill, yet is vital to every part of the growing cycle. In this unit students will learn how to assess the watering needs of plants, the implications of getting it wrong, and learn how to apply water and different types of fertilizer accurately and successfully to plants in the ground as well as in containers.
