Overview

RHS Level 2 Certificate in the Principles of Horticulture

The RHS assess your knowledge of the principles which are the foundations of horticultural practices. This theory based course is called The Principles of Horticulture. It is made up of two certificates: "Principles of Plant Growth, Propagation and Development" and "Principles of Garden Planning, Establishment and Maintenance". Each of these has a number of modules (See below).  

Buying the full collection is the most economical way of getting ready for your exam (You save 20% rather than buying each individual unit).

Those who successfully complete all the necessary units below for both level 2 theory-based qualifications  - covered in the collection - will be awarded the RHS Level 2 Certificate in the Principles of Horticulture  when they pass their exam (total 28 credits, which equates to 280 learning hours).  

Taking the Final Exam

Once you pass the two theory sections of the course with us, your tutors (Hilary Thomas and Dr Noel Kingsbury) prepare you for the final written exam, which will be taken at a RHS exam centre near you (or you will be advised on how to do this if you're not in the UK). Please write to qualifications@rhs.org.uk and tell them that you are studying with Noel Kingsbury and Hilary Thomas at Learning with Experts. Wherever you are in the world, they will help you book and pay for your final exam, and we will ensure you're fully prepared for it.
