Horticulture Diploma

Course Overview
The course covers all the major horticultural topics - such as lawns, trees, shrubs, the greenhouse, plants and vegetables. We examine them from a professional point of view. In doing so, we'll transform you from an enthusiast into an expert. We'll greatly increase your horticultural knowledge. So you'll know why things happen, as well as how they happen.

You don't have to leave your own garden to study. We bring all the course materials to your door. If you enjoy gardening, the Diploma course will help you get the most from it.

It doesn't matter whether you have a small town garden or a large space in the country. Both present their own challenges. And both are just as satisfying. With our help, you'll have the confidence to embark upon new projects. Perhaps you haven't tried tackling soft fruit, or a rock garden? Possibly you'd like to try greenhouse cultivation, or producing plants from cuttings? By enrolling on the Diploma course, all these things are possible.

And maybe you'd like to be your own boss? We'll show you how you could start selling your own plants, or even set up your own nursery.

Alternatively, we reveal how to get work as a contract gardener or landscaper. You'll discover what types of gardening produce more income. Often the changes are minor, but the financial improvement is immense.
