Our Horticulture qualifications are ran from Hetton Lyons Country Park, and involve hands on training rather than classroom based, meaning you’ll be learning practical skills in a realistic setting. Horticulture learners have the opportunity to learn how to use and maintain machinery, complete garden design, hard and soft landscaping, paving and fencing. They learn to plant trees, shrubs and flowers and propagate. Learners will also cover brush cutting and first aid qualifications.
