A course on plant growth and health that will grow your knowledge even further
**This course is no longer available to new enrolments from April 1 2023**
We plan to launch the new RHS Level 3 syllabus from September 2023. Please contact our student advisors for further information and guidance or, to register your interest in the new syllabus without obligation, please click here.
Progressing on from the RHS Level 2 qualification, this is ideal for those wishing to pursue a horticultural career or already working in this field. It should also provide rewarding study for keen leisure gardeners. You will gain an in-depth, scientific understanding of plant health, nutrition and development, propagation and root systems, as well as a detailed exploration of diseases and pests. It prepares you for the Level 3 RHS qualification which can provide a route to employment as a gardener or garden designer. The Level 3 qualification is also an excellent base for higher level training.
Your first set of course materials will be sent to you when you enrol. You can start as soon as you want and progress through the course at your own pace (you have 2 years to complete it), studying when and where you choose. This flexibility makes it easy to fit learning around work and family commitments.
The extensive course materials have been developed by gardening experts and are clear and straightforward, so your studying is easy and enjoyable. As you complete each lesson, your tutor will promptly return your marked assignment with constructive feedback and guidance. (You can also contact your tutor or the support team for help at any point during your studies.)
All the required study materials are included.
On successful completion of your studies and the RHS exams you will be awarded a nationally recognised RHS qualification.
