The basics of horticulture are only the beginning in running a successful gardening round. What do you know about earning an income, about health and safety, relevant laws, qualifications, and business planning? What do you know about insurance, book keeping, tax returns and national insurance? This course covers everything that you will need to know into order to run a gardening business.
This course is not an introduction to gardening and horticulture as such, although the basics will be referred to. It is much more about business planning, logistics and the everyday skills of being self-employed.
Your choices may include:
- Introduction to Garden Design
- How to Become a Garden Designer
- Horticulture RHS Level 2
- Garden Design Foundation Degree
