Horticulture is one of those subjects that feel counter-intuitive to online learning. The very practical aspect of it makes it seem a bit silly to get a distance learning course to teach you how to pot a plant instead of, say, going to a local college to be taught in person. However, if you've ever watched a cooking show and picked up a great recipe which you've managed to recreate successfully, then learning horticultural principles via distance learning with the aid of YouTube doesn't seem so strange afterall.

We've picked out four channels we think are worth watching for any horticulture student or hobbyist. They might even be helfpul for the professional out there!

Gary Pilarchik (The Rusted Garden)

What we liked about this channel was its emphasis on being to the point and as condensed as possible in their how-to videos. We also liked the channel's attempt to try save the viewer £££ (or $$$ as it's a U.S. based gardener) with videos that show what you're paying for and why.

Claire's Allotment

Claire's Allotment has been posting on YouTube for over 10 years now and has a lot of experience sharing content online. She posts roughly twice a month, so there is a back log of material to go through if you need to know anything about allotment gardening.

Are ad hominem attacks always invalid?

Valid Arguments In order to be valid, an argument has to be based on evidence. For example, we might say: “Tigers can produce milk…” Or “Wildlife brings tourism…“ However, these are not valid arguments unless we give some evidence, or cite a source: “… Since tigers are mammals and all female mammals can lactate for
