The adult education program at McKinley High School is offering two horticulture courses: one basic and one advanced.

Both classes meet from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Mondays for 13 weeks from Jan. 26 through May 4 in the greenhouse at the school, 1500 Elmwood Ave., Buffalo.

The cost for each class is $175.

You don’t have to live in the City of Buffalo to take the class.

You can register in person at 6 p.m. Jan. 26 at the school. You can register online now: register here for the basic class or register here for the advanced class.

In the basic class, you’ll earn about soils, plant propagation, landscaping, floral design, lawn care, pests, and more. The course will use the latest in equipment and techniques. Students will have their garden questions answered and can expect to get their hands dirty.

The advanced class is for those who have taken the basic horticulture class or who have industry experience. The instructor utilizes the knowledge, interests and background of the students to design the class. The content of this class is more in depth than the basic class and requires a basic understanding of soils, plant propagation and plant culture.

  1. Should you always start with the basic course 1st? I am an experienced home gardener & have been on the Snyder/Cleve Hill Garden View, but I’ve never taken any formal class room instruction. Who is teaching these courses?
