As a recognised RHS Centre, Nicholsons will now be offering the RHS Level 2 courses to internal staff as part of development, but also to the general public such as leisure learners and career changers.
Founded as a forestry company 40 years ago, the family-run business has since diversified to offer landscape and gardening services, along with their more recent retail ventures of Rosara Outdoor Style and the Yurt Café. All of these operate from their site in North Aston, which also has a 23-acre nursery specialising in screening and hedging.
The courses will be taught by Nicholsons’ long-term horticultural specialist, Steve Malsher. who said: "After an awful lot of hard work in the background this summer, I am absolutely delighted that Nicholsons have been offered this prestigious award, allowing us to offer what are, undoubtedly, the best horticultural courses. We are very excited, not only for Nicholsons to have the best trained staff, but to be somewhere that the general public can come to get accreditation as well. To us, this is the next step in Nicholsons’ journey to become a Centre of Horticultural Excellence and Training."
