In the RHS: Planting Styles course we’ll look at how horticulturalists combine their plant knowledge with the ways people interact with gardens and landscapes.
This course is the new syllabus and will be available to start subject to RHS accreditation in September 2022. Some lessons and tutors may change slightly depending on the course and filming structure.
We’ll cover formal and informal garden and planting styles and look at historic garden design characteristics.
You’ll learn how to use the advantages of plants (for example to create shade) and how to combine plants.
This course will also include how horticulturalists can create edible landscapes and grow fruit and vegetables in ways that have a wider social impact.
The course includes RHS student registration fee and exam fees (based on in-person exams). You'll learn the syllabus for the RHS Level 2 exams and RHS Level 2 qualification. Exams are run separately by the RHS.
