Planting What Where 20 Hours Certificate Course

Understand the concept of: right plant, right place for a healthy garden.

You can buy lovely plants on a whim only to have them die weeks or months after they are planted. Sound familiar? It takes a bit of know-how to help plants to thrive but it isn’t that difficult if you have some fundamental knowledge and skills.

Learn how to choose plants that will be right for each garden situation: right for the soil, right for the climate and right for the aspect. This saves you (and or your customers) money, time and disappointment.

This course is for:

  •     Gardeners and anyone working in the gardening industry
  •     Beginner garden designers
  •     Designers and landscape architects with gaps in their knowledge
  •     Nursery sales assistants
  •     Home gardeners

Nothing beats a healthy garden!

This course can be done as quickly as you like, in a week nor less, or if your prefer take your time and spend several weeks or months. There is no set time limit, no set times you need to login to classes. No time restrictions, no deadlines, a truly interactive and flexible learning experience!

A 20 hour short course covering lessons each of which has several self-guided ‘Learn More’ learning options – do them all or do just a few, there are no set restrictions. At the end of each lesson do the short interactive test – that way you will monitor how well you are progressing and how well you have absorbed what you have read. After the final lesson there is a longer test/examination – pass this test by 60% or more and you will automatically be able to down load your Certificate of Completion with your name, the date and the name of the course.

A great way to learn – especially if you are time-poor.
