Green Fingers

The sunshine this week has left everyone with a distinct summer feeling; evenings spent in beer gardens, picnics in the park and afternoon BBQs suddenly no longer seem like a distant dream. And as always, at the beginning of a sunshine spell we all want to spend as much time outside as possible. So in the name of outdoor pursuits, The Amazing Blog has decided to delve further into the world of gardening, something we previously knew little about.

Thanks to My Garden School, however, that's about to change. The world's first online gardening school, My Garden School offers four-week long courses, with video tutorials delivered weekly and course notes and asignments that are assessed by your personal tutors. Pupils also get to chat to both their tutors and fellow classmates online in 'virtual classroom', thus being given the opportunity to discuss and ask any questions they might have.

My Garden School boasts the creme de le creme of gardeners; all the tutors are leading garden experts - they have all written gardening books, have their own horticultural businesses and some are editors of gardening magazines, thus you can be assured that you really will be learning from the very best in the business.

The courses cover all aspects of gardening, from landscape design to growing vegetables and herbs and garden photography; so whatever skill you're after, it's guaranteed you'll learn it with this fabulous online course. They have recently signed Blue Peter gardener Chris Collins for a course on Gardening For Kids, so the whole family can get involved. We'll certainly be giving it a go here at The Amazing Blog - why don't you join in too and find your inner green fingers?!
