Upcoming Online Gardening Programs

The UW-Madison Division of Extension Horticulture Program is offering free online gardening programs to help you be more successful with growing and caring for plants in the yard, garden, containers—or wherever your plants grow! These programs are suitable for gardeners of all skill levels. 

The next series begins in February and is free and open to the public. You can attend just one or all three programs, though registration is required for each session. All programs will be recorded and available to view on the Extension Horticulture website at a later time.
