Join me as I walk you through mastering pests, diseases and weeds in the garden and landscape. These three foes are inevitable for every gardener, but here, I'll show you the proactive steps you can take to minimize their presence and how to identify and manage what does come.
In this course, I cover synthetic and organic principles, but I focus on organic treatments and explain why those natural controls or products can make such a difference - on the success of your garden and for our environment. You don't need a bunch of expensive products. In fact, some of those products can do more harm than good. I'll show you what matters and how to implement these steps in your garden.
When it comes to pests, diseases and weeds; there is a lot of bad information out there. It can be challenging and confusing to know what to do and what not to do. Make no mistake, there's no such thing as a garden that is completely free of pests, diseases or weeds. You will have some of these problems every season.
As a national gardening TV host and recognized expert for nearly two decades, I'll be your guide to to make sense of it all and understand the easy (and often free) steps you need to know. I've got you covered here in the Master Pests, Diseases and Weeds course presented by joe gardener Online Gardening Academy™.

"This is one of your strengths, and I can say that with authority because I have almost 40 years of experience in education. You marry the science with plain English, a dose of humor, and lots of examples of what to do or not to do. Good teaching!!" - Pat Paul K. - Illinois
"I cannot thank you enough for what you taught me. I was a hit and miss gardener. and you have given me enough knowledge to know which way I should do things to get a great garden. Thank you Joe." - Donna J. - Arkansas
"I guess I didn't know what I didn't know, but because your teaching was so thorough and well-rounded I learned a ton about things I never would have considered otherwise. I now know that some of these hidden nuggets will improve my gardening results tremendously.
I felt like I got explanations for the 'whys' and 'hows' that made sense. Gardening the same 'ol way because you've always done it that way or that's just the way you were taught is why it can be so frustrating. But understanding the purpose behind doing things and implementing the right methods for your particular garden is priceless." - Sandi G. - Georgia
"Your instructions are clear and organized. Your enthusiasm is wonderful - makes me want to go out and garden!" - Devyn S. - Oregon
Throughout the season, exclusive new demonstration videos will be added to provide you with additional visual instruction and detail. Plus - as this course is updated, you will automatically be provided access to the latest content.
