The Plant School is the leading independent provider of education for mature students wanting a grounding in plant knowledge – all the courses are focused on learning about plants with lectures by leading plantsmen.
Our established Plant Course has been running for more than ten years and covers the theory and practise of plants and their origins, from how to identify them to choosing the best species and cultivars for our gardens. This is covered by expert lecturers topped up with visit to plant collections. The Plant School has won several awards at RHS Chelsea and Hampton Court Palace Flower Shows for its exhibits. Come and meet course directors at the Plant School stand at either of those shows.
