Home Gardening

Home Gardening Courses Online

Inspite of global warming we still don’t yet have the much-sought-after Mediterranean climate in the UK, but we can still grow continental produce that until fairly recently, we thought could only flourish in warmer climes. Over the last three or four decades there has been a significant change in the fruit and veg we now grow in England. Back in the 1970s few gardeners, if any, grew garlic, French beans (runner beans, yes) or artichokes – and certainly not figs. But as we’ve increasingly adopted a taste for a Mediterranean diet, our veg and fruit selection has become more adventurous.

One seasoned gardener in the South of England now plants garlic in the Autumn and it grows very successfully. Her globe artichokes do well, as long as she protects them through the winter. Her aubergines and lady fingers (okra) grow nicely in a dry summer – otherwise she keeps them in a greenhouse. Her fig vine, growing up a south facing wall protected from the wind, produces one plentiful crop of fruit per year (two in the Mediterranean), as long as she de-figs it annually.

Home Gardening are the world's biggest business and the demand for job opportunities is 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.
