Bonsai and Small Container Gardening will be the topic of a four-week course beginning Jan. 27 at Coastal Carolina Universitys Waccamaw Higher Education Center in Litchfield.

Jasmine Govindoo, a master of the ancient art of bonsai techniques, will teach how to plant and transplant, turning small containers into miniature gardens. The course will meet on Thursdays each week from 1 to 3 p.m. through Feb. 17.
