What Can I Expect

Sign up for these online garden design courses and reap your very own garden design diploma! Under the watchful eye of some of the horticultural world’s most renowned and influential figures, you will learn all there is to know about designing gardens and landscaping.

These extensive online courses comprise 13 courses, made up of 62 assignments. All teaching takes place in the virtual classroom, with a collective of 11 different tutors sharing their particular design or garden expertise with you.

Tutor Tom Stuart-Smith is a well-known landscape architect and garden designer with a modern and natural style. He’s a multi-gold award-winner at the famous Chelsea Flower Show and is a great host for these online garden design classes.

Colleague Chris Beardshaw is no stranger to your screens, having presented several TV gardening shows, including BBC 2’s ‘The Flying Gardener’. Professionally trained and qualified, Chris has 12 (and counting) gold awards from the RHS. Legendary Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf is something of a planting icon, with his signature swathes of colour and form making him an influential member of the ‘new perennials’.

And if you don’t know your perennials from your biennials, don’t worry. These online gardening design courses require no previous training, just the enthusiasm to want to create gardens. The Peer option is ideal if you’re wanting to design your own garden. The Expert is perfect for those thinking about turning your hobby into a career, as you get personal tutoring and feedback for your assignments, with a certificate on successful completion of the course.

What’s more, each course completed counts for two Continuing Education Units, which are in turn recognised by the Association of Professional Landscape Designers (APLD).

No stone is left unturned on these online garden design courses, with sessions on planting, grasses, small gardens, country gardens, perennials, wild flower meadows, trees, shrubs, container gardening and how to render your very own garden design. Get your rake, spade and pruning shears at the ready, it’s time to garden!
