Certificate In Gardening Courses

Wed, 27/09/2000 - 01:00

East Durham College’s Houghall Campus has just restarted their very popular Certificate in Gardening courses and there are still a few places left.

The courses run for 10 weeks on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6.30pm-8.30pm, starting next week.

On Tuesdays we are offering the Organic Gardening and on Wednesdays Beds and Borders.

On the Organic Gardening course you will learn about the principles of organic gardening, soil management and cultivation, fertilizer, composting and crop protection and rotation.

Beds and Boarders covers hardy herbaceous perennials, annuals, biennials and bedding plants, outdoor ornamental containers and baskets, outdoor bulbs and the maintenance of flowers.

There is also the option to take a City & Guilds test at the end of the 10 weeks to gain a recognised Level 2 qualification.

The course fee is £125.00, with the optional cost of £35.30 to take the exam.
