Why Study Horticulture?

Studying horticulture is a great idea for landowners who want to learn intelligent growing systems and practices – or for students who wish to gain employment in the industry. These courses are also suitable for those wanting to start a business utilising theoretical knowledge of plants, nursery production and a broad range of other horticultural skills.

Learn to grow plants for yourself or as a foundation for a career path across Landscape Design and Construction, Arboriculture, Cemetery Care – and many other exciting jobs. Studying horticulture is also a great way to learn to develop your property towards sustainability or further cultivate your love for working outdoors.
