Do you think horticulture is just about pretty flowers and an herbaceous border?

During this thought-provoking and wide-ranging botanical adventure, you will discover how forensic botanists are helping the police catch killers and solve other major crimes.

Via a series of weekly demonstrations and hands-on practical’s you will learn how to diagnose and treat a range of different garden pests and diseases using organic remedies you can make yourself at home. As well as learning the recipe and technique for making your own Japanese style bokashi compost.

Themed weekly plant identifications will help you build your knowledge and confidence finding the right plants for the right places in your garden and help you achieve the garden effect you want and give your garden all year-round interest.

As part of our adventure we will look at different garden styles from around the world and how they can be successfully incorporated into our own gardens, particularly those from Scandinavia.


Enjoy learning in a relaxed and informative atmosphere in the company of enthusiastic fellow gardeners. 

The course includes 10 planned full day visits to a range of gardens and nurseries in the South East to compliment the class room themes studied.
