This learning packet contains teaching suggestions and student learning materials for a course in basic horticulture aimed at preparing students for employment in a number of horticulture areas. The packet includes nine sections and twenty instructional units. Following the standard format established for Oklahoma vocational education materials in 1970, the units include eight basic components: performance objectives, suggested activities for the teacher, information sheets, assignment sheets, job sheets, transparency masters, tests, and answers to tests and assignment sheets. All of the unit components zero in on measurable and observable learning outcomes, and encourage hands-on experience. Topics covered in the eight sections are plant growth and reproduction; plant propagation; soils; fertilizers; plant growth media; plant problems and control; pruning; plant identification; and potting procedures.
