Gardening

For many people a garden can be a challenge, but we can give you the confidence and skills you need for effective maintenance of your garden. We run a range of gardening courses for all abilities including workshops, short courses and year-long programmes.

These very popular courses show you everything from garden planning to growing your own food.

If you want to work in horticulture our City & Guilds Award and Certificate courses give you what you need to get started in the horticulture industry. Focussing on the fundamental practical skills, these courses combine theory and practice in topics such as garden planning, preparing planted areas, food growing, pruning and maintaining lawns.
