RHS Level 3 : Practical Course

- Collecting, preparing and propagating from seed
- Establishing and maintaining a range of plant types and forms
- Identification of a range of common garden plants, weeds, pests, diseases and disorders

How each course is taught and assessed:
You will study 5 units. We offer the propagation unit as part of the 'blended' course.
You will be shown in your online classroom how to carry out a range of practical horticultural tasks, which you should study and practise; then you will have the chance to practise them again at our Centre before you are assessed against Royal Horticultural Society standards.

Part 2, assessment: RHS Registration fees £110 + assessment fees £410 + VAT = £624, or four instalments of £162 including administration fee.
