Practical Horticulture Skills – Propagation Techniques Award Level 2

Level 2 - Intermediate

Practical Horticulture Skills - Propagation Techniques Award Level 2

This course is part of our short course program looking to develop specific horticulture skills. The course is based at Birmingham Botanic Gardens. On successful achievement of the course this will lead to formal certification with City and Guilds.

Learn about the skills, practical techniques and theory of propagation in the beautiful surroundings of Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

The course will be practical and hands on, with learners achieving the qualification by demonstrating the appropriate skills and knowledge. It will include topics such as:
• Choosing the right approach for the right plant
• Easy propagation techniques
• Cuttings available throughout the year
• Suitable environments for cutting development
• Grafting without injury
• Improving your success rate

Students at our centre not only learn in the environment of the gardens but are also able to contribute to its care, maintenance and development. We frequently work alongside the gardeners to support them in the practical tasks that need carrying out on site, which means that you not only get a great experience, but also learn to carry out practical horticultural tasks to a very high standard.

All of the short courses will run for 6 weeks.
