It was in South-East Asia where the earliest traces of cultivated plants were discovered, dating from around 10,000 BC – our staple millet and rice. We have come a long way since then in our practice of horticulture… It should come as no surprise, then, that it is considered both an art and a science.

The number of courses currently running at ADL in this subject are as prolific and varied as its historical roots might suggest. Ever considered doing a course in, for example

 Berry Production (BHT309), Herb Culture (BHT114)

 Cottage Garden Design (BHT110) or Hydroponics (BHT 224),

to name but 4 of 86 possibilities – and all in the comfort of your own home, through correspondence, on-Line or USB

In terms of horticultural careers, ADL courses can open up avenues into Landscaping & Garden Design, Wholesale Nursery Management, Aromatherapy, Plant Breeding, Sports Turf Management…and many more.

This diverse discipline can be discovered and explored on-Line, any time, come rain or shine!
