Plant Nursery & Propagation

Plant Nursery and Propagation Courses Online

Nursery & Propogation are the world's biggest business and the demand for job opportunities is enormous. In agriculture alone, it is predicted there will be a need for 50,000 additional professionals in this industry over the next 5-10 years. Demand for professionals will exceed the supply in all areas of horticulture. Whether your interest in Plant Nursery and Propagation 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 Plant Nursery and Propagation. Choose from our wide selection of online courses.

In plant life, as in human, there are some diseases which are difficult to eradicate, hence the adage “prevention is better than cure” comes to the fore. Plant infections – “pathogens” – come in viral, bacterial or fungal form, but many can be prevented by following some basic sanitary procedures. Our tutors will guide you through subjects and materials that might not be dissimilar to those found in an NHS Health and Safety hospital manual:

  • Dispose of all diseased plants, including any remaining infected debris: in our hospitals we would expect a highly contaminated patient to be segregated.

  • Thoroughly disinfect the gardening tools that you use to remove infected branches: no hospital surgeon would use unsterilized implements on his patient.

  • When planting seeds or cuttings, use only clean pots or containers: a hospital patient would expect to be given a clean bed with fresh bedlinen.

  • Allow plenty of space between plants, to give them enough air/breeze: hospitals are the breeding ground for infections, where due to the inevitably high proportion of patients, bugs can spread easily if there is over-crowding.

  • Nip the plant disease in its bud: the earlier a human disease is caught, the better the chance of treating it successfully.
