The Cotswold Gardening School will be launching a one year professional garden design diploma course in September this year.
The course will include "live projects", giving students the opportunity to design real gardens for real clients.
The school’s ten week Professional Garden Design Diploma, which runs four times a year will act as one module of the one year course. Modules include, professional garden design, professional planting design and professional horticulture. Each module runs several times a year, offering students flexibility to fit the course around their existing commitments.
The school is planning to announce a competition-based scholarship for the course nearer the time of its launch. It is still inviting garden design projects to be sent in for consideration for use as projects on the course. More information can be found at www.cotswoldgardeningschool.co.uk.
