Garden Design Diploma
Collection of 12 courses
RHS Chelsea Gold Medal winner and expert gardener Andy McIndoe teaches you how to choose the right shrub for your garden and how to maintain, prune and combine other plants with shrubs.
Shrubs are the backbone of planting design. They provide essential structure, beauty and colour from foliage and flowers, texture and a great variety of shape and form in the planting palette.
Shrubs are tipped to be the big thing this year in garden design - particularly the use of fragrant shrubs. Shrubs play a key role in garden designs throughout the seasons, including flowering shrubs and evergreen shrubs.
This course delivers essential advice on selection of the right shrubs for any garden design situation. You will also learn the practical aspects - the simple secrets of pruning, and how to plant and care for your shrubs for best results. Foliage is the foundation of good planting and shrubs deliver leafy colour in both deciduous and evergreen form.
Learn how to use shrubs to create simple but effective planting combinations for designer impact in any garden. If you select wisely the shrubs in your garden can create all-year round interest year after year.
This course will help you choose the right shrub for every situation in your garden, and at any time of the year.
This gardening course will empower you to choose the right shrubs for your planting design. It will also ignite passion for an area of planting that is rarely used to its optimum potential.

You don't need special equipment, but you will be planning which shrubs you could use in various garden situations.
This course is suitable for gardeners at all levels - from people new to gardening to professional gardeners who are keen to understand more about the use of shrubs.
