Horticulture & Gardening (Spring)

Horticulture & Gardening Spring semester is a one-semester science elective for juniors and seniors.  It can be taken alone or in addition to Horticulture & Gardening: Fall semester.  The spring session will focus on topics that relate to plant biology as available light and temperatures increase.  Some topics will include germination, pest and disease management, propagation and soil amendments.  In addition, students will research and raise a variety of species from seed to sell during the annual plant sale.  Students with an interest in business and developing entrepreneurial skills will enjoy the process of growing seeds and turning it into cash. Students will be required to maintain a journal/ lab book, participate fully in greenhouse and plant care (including occasional weekend/ vacation watering duty) complete lab activities and assessments of knowledge gained.
