The Great Courses' How to Grow Anything: Make Your Trees and Shrubs Thrive DVD Set
12 lectures - 30 minutes per lecture
It’s easy to think of trees and shrubs as an enormous commitment and investment—one that doesn’t reap immediate rewards in the same way as container gardening. But the truth is that there are hundreds of wonderful trees and shrubs out there for you to choose from, and growing them can be a lot easier (and more rewarding) than you think.
Trees and shrubs, regardless of the specific constraints of your landscape, can provide colorful bursts of flowers, fresh fruit and wholesome nuts, height and depth to a garden design, and refreshing shade on hot summer days.
And just as important as the beauty of trees and shrubs is their practical use. When grown properly, trees and shrubs offer numerous benefits for any property owner, including:
- a clear—and natural—framework for your outdoor spaces
- an eye-catching barrier (and getaway) from loud noises and unsightly view
- creative ways to conserve energy and reduce pollution in and around your home
- green spaces that can help raise the curb appeal (and value) of your home.
But once you’ve decided to try your hand at trees and shrubs, where should the everyday gardener start? Right here with How to Grow Anything: Make Your Trees and Shrubs Thrive. In just 12 engaging lectures by horticulturalist, certified arborist, and nationally syndicated garden host Melinda Myers, you’ll discover everything you need to make trees and shrubs an integral (and manageable) investment in your outdoor spaces. Taking you through a variety of different landscapes, climates, and seasons, these lectures reveal effective—and practical—gardening techniques and strategies for shopping, planting, and caring for trees and shrubs just like the experts.
