  • Entry requirements
    This course is designed for anyone who is interested in learning more about the
    effective and sustainable management of their home horticultural landscape. A
    basic understanding of plants is helpful, but not required.
  • Course description
    In this course, you will learn about the art and the science of
    caring for plants. Specifically, our focus will be on the prevention and diagnosis of
    plant problems, as well as a least toxic approach to tolerating and/or managing
    plant problems in the home horticultural landscape.

    We examine plant types (e.g. woody, herbaceous), garden types (e.g. container,
    vegetable), and elements (pathogens, soils, insects, management decisions ) that
    influence the growth and vigor of plants in the home garden.

    On average, students should expect to spend 6 hours per week, viewing narrated
    lectures and completing readings, assignments and quizzes. Some modules, such
    as the sustainable landscaping and container gardening modules, are likely to
    require less time. Individuals without a background in science or horticulture may
    find that it will take more than 6 hours per week to complete some of the more
    technical modules, such as basic botany, soils and entomology.

    The Master Gardener basic training course is hosted in OSU's Blackboard (Bb)
    Learning Portal System.

    The online Master Gardener basic training course's topics include:
    • Basic botany and entomology
    • Integrated pest management and pesticide safety
    • Soils, fertilizers and composting
    • Ornamental, herbaceous plants and woody plants

    • Sustainable landscaping
    • Plant pathology
