Royal Horticultural Society Level 3 Certificate in Practical Horticulture

RHS Level 3 Practical

This course runs from September to June. You will have your own plot to work on, plus a greenhouse, cold frames and composting facilities. Tools and equipment are provided, and the produce is yours too! All in a special RHS students’ area, backed with an orchard.

Superb gardens at Lamport Hall are a great learning resource for us – we can practice techniques in a real environment on a range of plants too large to list!


The Level 3 course works to a more ‘industry based’ standard, so can help if you are working in horticulture, or want to do so.

£1499 per person for the year, payable in 2 instalments: £899 Sept 2020, £600 Jan 2021. Includes all assessment and certification fees, the recommended textbook, tools and equipment, and refreshments (not lunch).
