We couldn't find specific gardening courses too close to County Londonderry which is why studying at MyGardenSchool is a great way to learn from horticultural experts.
What is worth mentioning though is the Guy Wilson Daffodil Garden, Coleraine, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland is famous for its narcissus breeding, and here you can find a landscape designed to display and conserve daffodils, especially those of Northern Ireland origin, begun in 1972.
It's also worth mentioning The Irish Garden Plant Society co-ordinates Plant Collections held within Ireland under the umbrella of Plant Heritage (National Council for the Conservation of Plants and Gardens) NCCPG, which was founded in 1978 in repsonse to concerns about plant conservation in gardens. Collections can embrace species and cultivars, and collection holders can become specialists in their chosen genus, reflected by the awarding of "Scientific" status to the collection. The collection holder can be a professional or amateur gardener, botanist, or conservationist, and the collection, depending on the genus chosen, can vary from "species only" to certain hybrids within a genus, or even a historical collection based on a person, nursery, or garden, or a particular time.
