Master the Art of Garden Maintenance 

Gardens come in many shapes and sizes from historical stately homes covering many acres to exquisite town gardens of just a few hundred square metres. Despite this diversity of design and purpose, the underlying principles and practicalities of maintaining these gardens remains the same. However, these principles and practicalities are extremely varied and the prospect of learning them all can be very daunting to early-career horticulturalists. This varied course is very broad-based providing a clear structure to your studying and covers a wide range of topics all of which are highly relevant in modern gardening.
