About the Apprenticeship

Level 2 Horticulture and Landscape Operative apprentices can be employed to work in public parks, green spaces and historic gardens, private gardens and estates, or in production nurseries and retail outlets – the opportunities are vast.

The horticulture option focuses on plant propagation and growth whilst the landscape option focuses on the installation of features and structures; application of landscape materials as well as supporting site management.

Work is generally based outside and undertaken throughout the year, so apprentices will frequently work outside in all weathers.
