History of Ornamental Gardens

Duration: 4 hours

Though beginnings of horticulture are lost in the mists of time, it is a certainty that plants were being selected and cultivated at the very beginning of human civilisation. Evidence has been found of gardens in ancient civilisations in all parts of the world: Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. In this course, you will learn about the history of garden design, particularly in the UK, and about the influence of plant introductions.
