With The Academy of Practical Horticulture Ltd.

With B.E.S.T. in Horticulture Ltd.

Brilliant tutors with a wealth of horticultural knowledge and experience. I studied at the North Moreton site which is one of the tutors gardens with veg plots at the rear for students to use. Would thoroughly recommend both the practical and blended or online courses with great resources available for study.

As we are approaching our final lesson at North Moreton I would like to express my thanks to BEST for the programme which has provided me with tools and knowledge that I am utilizing at University College, the support has been fabulous and I look forward to doing courses again personally in the future.

I studied the taught Certificate in Practical Horticulture at the Ryton Gardens site. I can't speak highly enough of both the learning environment created and quality of teaching provided by both Tony & Janet. BEST in Horticulture gave me the skills and confidence to take the leap from working in the commercial world, to setting up my own Garden Maintenance and Landscaping company. I shall be forever grateful to Tony and Janet and look forward to carrying out further study with BEST in the future.

Thank you to you all there for your support and great notes and information. When you are learning online, its crucial that the notes are clear and well explained as you are teaching yourself as well as revising it. BEST's notes are very good and the revision booklet has been a great help too.
