The main focus of the course will be on agricultural techniques for growing a wide range of flower crops, both one-year-old (about 40 genera) and perennial (more than 40 genera). Under the guidance of the teacher, students will be able to learn how to grow seedlings of annual flower crops, and researchers – curators of the collections of the Botanical Garden will talk about the secrets of agricultural technology of flower crops, which are widely represented in our collections (peonies, irises, phlox, roses, daylilies). Most of the classes will be conducted by a breeder-florist, c / s. n DB Kudryavets is the author of many books and manuals on growing annual and perennial flowers. The course lasts 84 academic hours.
The cost of 30,000 rubles.
Classes will be held on the territory of Moscow State University on the Sparrow Hills twice a week (presumably on Wednesdays and Fridays) from 19 to 22 hours. Beginning of classes on November 8, end – end of January 2017.
