About the Course
This programme is aimed at developing knowledge and understanding across a broad range of horticultural and gardening principals and topics.
It is ideal for those wishing to develop and strengthen their horticulture knowledge and is therefore suitable for keen amateur gardeners. It is also suitable for individual professional development for those employed within the industry. Students will study plant propagation, outdoor food production, garden planning, the root environment and plant nutrition, plant selection and horticultural plant health problems.
Although there is no formal entry requirement for the RHS Level 2 an interest and enthusiasm for plants and gardening is essential.
It is now possible to study RHS Level 3 Certificate in Horticulture at BCA. This is an evening course over two years and builds on the knowledge gained from the Level 2 Theory course. Although there are no formal prerequisites for entry to the qualification it is strongly recommended that students have studied the content covered by the Level 2 Certificate or an equivalent Level 2 qualification in horticulture.
The theory-based qualifications focus on developing the knowledge and understanding of a range of horticultural practices.
The practical-based qualification focuses on developing essential horticultural skills.
If you choose to take the theory-based and practical-based certificates you could achieve an RHS Level 2 Diploma in the Principles and Practices of Horticulture.
