What Our Students Think!

 

“Hi Susan,
Just wanted to say thank you so much for all of  your
corrections and input throughout this course. I’ve
taken on board your comments in the last workbook
about reading more widely, and I’m going to go
through the quizzes and past papers online next
week 
to prepare for the exam.

I’ve really enjoyed this course; it’s far more in-depth
than I was expecting, which is challenging at times
but definitely worth the work and I feel I’ve learned
so much!  Best wishes,
Sian S – RHS Certificate (Theory) Level  2 – Principles
of  Plant Growth
