Royal Horticultural Society (RHS)

As an external candidate you might be studying for an RHS qualification by distance learning or you might be self-taught. You can enter for RHS exams here, as we are an RHS approved centre. You do not have to be enrolled here as a student.

Gaining a qualification is an ideal first step if you are considering a career in horticulture. It’s also a great choice for leisure or professional gardeners who want to improve their knowledge, including some essential theory. Topics covered range from the miracle of how plants grow, how to propagate them and maintain them, to plant selection, basic surveying, garden design and the benefits of greenhouses and other protected environments. 

The RHS on-demand exams that we offer include: 

 Exam  Price   
 RHS Level 2 Exams (Per Unit)                                          £70
