Horticultural Skills (City and Guilds) – Monday 5th to Friday 9th August 2018
We pride ourselves in delivering horticultural courses that are unique, and we believe this to be the only one of its kind in the area. You will have access to the full range of resources at our cut flower nursery, and have the chance to learn through lots of hands-on activities.
This course will cover all the principles of organic horticulture, from soil management, plant propagation, plant establishment, plant maintenance, pest and disease control, to plant characteristics, composting, companion planting, and much, much more! The course is co-delivered by Jo, Organic Blooms Founder and Andy, our lead horticulturalist. There will be some theory and plenty of chance for questions and practicing skills.
Cost includes all materials and light refreshments. Please bring a packed lunch to enjoy in our gardens. Each day will start from 9:30am and finish around 4pm.
Participants on this course may be eligible for a City and Guilds certificate – if you would like to register for this, please choose the option which includes the City and Guilds Registration (a £50 Registration Fee applies). If you successfully pass the course, there will be an additional fee due for Certification. This will be £100 for a Diploma, £50 for a Certificate and £30 for an Award.
