The course is a good basis for any aspiring gardener. The questions after each module are indifferent to say the least and there were a couple of errors that the tutor corrected. I did enjoy it and it was not too testing. RHS next.

Good info very informative
I have enjoyed this on-line course from which I have learnt a great deal. I have been able to continue my own research on foliage and flowers, when looking at a particular style of arrangement as discussed within the module. The videos were a great help with visual instructions and made it easier to complete the task which had been set. The modules were easy to follow and a great deal of thought had gone into each one. As the modules were available in PDF format, I was able to download and read through the material at leisure and it enabled me to return and read again without being stuck in front of the computer. I now have two folders which hold my course work and other researched materials too. A very valuable resource. I would recommend this course to those who wish to learn more or add to their knowledge about the art of floristry. When I had to contact the 'help' desk, the response was always prompt and when my message had to be forwarded to the IT department, they were extremely helpful and efficient, which really enabled the course to run smoothly. One will be able to build on this course, it's a very good foundation which will allow a person to pursue further avenues of florestry.
