Gardening Courses - Open Learning

Some people are lucky enough to be naturally gifted (or "green fingered") when it comes to gardening, seemingly born with a trowel in their hands. Others do not share this gift - however, gardening is certainly a skill that can be learned...

There are now many open learning gardening courses that you can take from the comfort of your home.

These may take the form of an online course, where everything is sent to you by email, or an offline course, where the course details will be posted to you. If you are taking the course with your local college, you may have the option to attend lessons in the college on certain days.

When selecting a gardening course, there are many things to consider:

1) The reputation of the organizers of the course. An organization such as the Open University would generally be expected to deliver higher quality than "Big Joe's Diplomas"

2) The type of learning you prefer. Are you happy to work at your own pace? Would you prefer to have some deadlines to work towards?

3) Your garden type. There's no point in taking a flower gardening course if you only want to grow vegetables in your garden!

4) Cost. As with all open learning, the cost of gardening courses can vary. If you're only doing it as a hobby, you may not need an expensive course. If you're planning to do gardening professionally, get the best you can afford.

Do some research on different gardening courses and try to work out which one is best for you. Gardening is a great subject for open learning, as you can try out everything you learn on your own garden straight away, you can work at your own speed and at times that suit you.

Good luck!
