Professional courses

Royal Horticultural Society courses


Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) courses at the Botanic Garden are suitable for keen gardeners or for those looking for a career in horticulture. These recognised qualifications will help you develop your horticultural knowledge and skills.

RHS Level 2

RHS Level 2 (L2) qualifications provide an entry route into the horticultural profession. They are a foundation for further learning or training. They also support career development for those working in the field of horticulture.

RHS Level 3

There won’t be any RHS level 3 courses running at the Botanic Garden for the 2023/24 academic year. We are hoping to start running Level 3 courses from Autumn 2024. Please send us an email if you would like to be added to our enquiry list for RHS Level 3 courses and we will contact you as soon as further details are available.

The future for RHS qualifications

As you may already know, the Royal Horticultural Society have updated their qualifications for delivery from Autumn 2022. Further information about these changes can be found on the RHS website.
