Horticulture Courses Online

Demand for Horticulturalists in the UK is always on the rise.   You used to be able to blame Alan Tichmarsh, but it's gone way beyond that now!  Partially due to the increase need of horticultural production, in particular within emerging industrial countries such as China and India.  Many employers in the industry are welcoming anyone with the right skills and attitude.  An increasing number of horticultural jobs are becoming linked to public contracts, so it is essential for businesses to show that their employees can meet the criteria by obtaining formal qualifications. 

Get a Horticulture Qualification:  The courses offered by ADL in this subject are diverse  – from diplomas in horticultural technology (including hydroponics, plant breeding and growing), to advanced certificates in horticulture (including crops, turf and plant protection) - and all through the convenience of distance learning.   To start your career you will need qualifications. Our wide range of online courses includes not only certificates and diplomas but also preparation for the various RHS awards including the level I I’s and Ii I’s and Master of Horticulture. All these qualifications are recognised for membership of the Institute of Horticulture. The institute provides recognition of status and the use of the appropriate letters after your name.

Get a career in Horticulture:  In terms of horticultural careers, ADL courses can open up avenues into Landscaping & Garden Design, Wholesale Nursery Management, Aromatherapy, Plant Breeding, Sports Turf Management. Horticulture is a great career - there is such diversity! You can be a hands-on gardener, a plant scientist or a garden designer, work in the commercial, amenity or environmental sector. The Horticulture industry is the largest employer in the UK. Job opportunities abound not only nationally but also internationally embracing the commercial and environmental sectors as well as research and journalism. Salaries within the industry of horticulture can range from £15,000 to £99,000 per annum.   

New to horticulture? Get a head start! :  Passionate about horticulture or want to embark on a career in this field?  In fact if you want to work in horticulture anywhere in the world, you will need a good foundation. Horticulture is far more than the cultivation of plants (whether for food, to enhance parks and countryside or for garden ornamentation): “Horticulture is where art, science, design and commerce meet – with challenging and rewarding careers no matter what your background or interests.” (Paul Harris – National Trust Picture Library). This diverse discipline can be explored through ADL's flexible study programmes.

Already work in horticulture, need Professional Development?  A professional development course will always enhance your CV/Resume - but more importantly, it can help you to achieve your career goals.  The RHS Gardening and Horticulture courses that ADL run are written by professional horticulturists, but can be be studied at home.
