Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Gee

This course continues on from the horticultural skills developed at level one. It is heavily weighted towards practical horticultural work. Included in this is planting and maintaining both a summer and winter raised Potager garden bed (flowers, herbs and vegetables) throughout the year.  The second major practical component is planting out and maintaining a native plant restoration area adjacent to the Horticulture block. The only theory work is Landscape plans and associated theory to support your Potager gardens.
