This course should appeal to the keen gardener, someone looking for a career change or a professional gardener looking to improve their knowledge.
You will explore the world of basic surveying and garden design principles, whilst learning about plant selection (including the world of Latin names) and the benefits of greenhouses and other protected environments. You will also be invited to join some of our local trips and demonstrations of practical work… so get your wellies on standby!
Mainly theory and classroom based, there are written assessments in February and June which lead to a formal, nationally recognised, qualification.
1 year, 1 day a week.
An interest in the subject and a commitment to sit the examinations.
