Learn Professional Horticulture Skills
Student Comment: "I have found the course to be interesting and challenging, with great learning materials that really make you research the industry and get involved. It has been a great way to study because it has allowed me to work in the industry and study at the same time. I have found the online resources to be fantastic, the tutors feedback constructive and the fact that assignments can be submitted online makes the process so easy."

Start an Exceptional Career Here!
Professional horticulturists are a very different breed to other people. This is a career which is all too often more of a passion for people than a job. Gardening is arguably the most popular "hobby" in the developed world; and for those of you who are lucky enough to persue and complete a diploma such as this; you are likely to keep learning about and practicing gardening whether as a job, or a passion, for as long as you live. One only needs to look at the nurserymen, garden writers and radio hosts to see active horticulturists come in all ages through to people in their 80's.
What Do You Need to Reach Your Full potential?
- With over 100,000 different plants in cultivation; you need to get to know your plants (maybe not 100,000 ...but good horticulturists can identify over 1,000 and continue learning new plants all their life)
- Growing Plants is a Science, so a firm grounding in soil science, botany, plant pathology and such things is always important
- Most horticulturists have specialised areas of interest (eg. Nursery, turf, landscaping, etc); but the best horticulturists know a little about everything; and can adapt as demands change in industry. The broadly trained horticulturist will always find a good job; but they might move from one area to another throughout their career.
