Our gardening courses are ideal for anyone who wants to develop their practical gardening skills and knowledge, whether you're:

  • a keen amateur
  • beginning a career in horticulture
  • thinking of changing your career and going into horticulture.

The programme of eight one-day practical gardening sessions is taught by experts in the Eden Horticultural Team.

What you'll learn

This course will cover the principles and practices of growing plants from seed. Seeds will be sown both in containers and outdoors. Preparation of both seed trays and seed beds will be shown. Other components of this course will cover seed collection, cleaning and storage, seed dormancy and viability, differing methods of seed sowing and irrigation requirements. 

This was a perfect mix of theory and practice.
