Explore Gardening Fundamentals to Plan, Establish and Maintain Gardens

Gardens are built and maintained by people. Deciding which plants to include takes experience and knowledge. Understanding how different plants grow and thrive takes time to learn. There are many different variables that affect plant growth, and different ways that these can be manipulated to optimise plant growth.    

This theory based qualification exposes students to principles of horticulture and is ideal for those working in the field already as well as would-be horticulturists. The level 2 course also provides a solid foundation for moving on to level 3 qualifications. Give yourself a solid grounding from which to enhance your knowledge and skills.
