Hi all

I want to do a certificate in garden design and was wondering what distance learning courses are available?

Is this for pleasure or business. If it is for business I would ask a local garden design company what qualification they accept or you will be wasting your money.

I have my own gardening business and would like a good understanding of design so I can take on bigger projects.

I would do an official RHS course, Garden Planning, Planting etc

This is quite an undertaking but would stand you in good stead. If this is not the level of work you want to do a couple of good books may help.

RHS is what I was thinking of.  Can I use that towards membership of the Society of Garden Designers?

many thanks
