Host gardens include castles, botanic gardens and private estates and they are offering training opportunities in both specialist and general horticulture.
The Dorothy Clive Garden in north Staffordshire has been selected as one of the host gardens. Curator Marcus Chilton-Jones said: "The trainee scheme is revered so this is a real accolade for us. We have a wealth of experience, which provides an extremely fertile learning opportunity."
