General Horticulture

General Horticulture is the world's biggest business and the demand for job opportunities are enormous. It is predicted there will be a need for 50,000 additional agricultural professionals in this industry over the next 5-10 years. Demand for professionals will exceed the supply. Whether your interest in agriculture is hobby based or you're looking for more formal qualifications such as certificates, advanced certificates, diplomas and advanced diplomas there is a course for you. Now is the time to train for a career in agriculture. Choose from our wide selection of courses.

We automatically regard waste products as unpleasant, malodorous or toxic – but they shouldn’t be regarded so in the plant world. For a flower’s waste product is what produces its alluring fragrance. And when a plant soaks up carbon dioxide, water and sunlight, it excretes sugars and a waste product of oxygen. It is, of course, this vital process of photosynthesis that enables life to exist on our planet. The basic process of gardening may be simple enough – plant seed, water, watch plant grow – but it is the invisible processes at work that are nothing less than miraculous.

Get a General Horticulture qualification:  If you want to learn more about the miracles of cultivation, sign up to one of ADL’s home study horticultural courses, such as Basic Plant Biochemistry. The course includes study of biochemical substances and terms, metabolism, the nitrogen cycle, photosynthesis, respiration, transpiration and much more...

Get a Career in General Horticulture:  Horticulture is far more than the cultivation of plants and there are many fields of study and work to choose from. If you wish to learn about garden design or landscape architecture, ADL offer a Higher Advanced Diploma in Horticulture - Landscaping – and all through a flexible home study programme. For those wishing to embark on a career in horticulture, ADL courses can open up avenues into Landscaping & Garden Design, Wholesale Nursery Management, Aromatherapy, Plant Breeding, Sports Turf Management...and many more.   

Learn new skills in General Horticulture:  Discover the world of Botany with ADL’s online course: Botany I – Plant Physiology and Taxonomy. As well as covering the basis of plant science, the course looks at general botany including morphology and anatomy.
