Johnsons Nurseries partners with college to deliver horticulture training course

Johnsons Nurseries partners with agricultural and horticultural college, Askham Bryan College, to deliver a bespoke horticulture training course.

The two Yorkshire based businesses will be partnering for a second year to deliver the 12 week course, ‘Introduction to Horticulture’, developed exclusively for Johnsons Nurseries’ staff.

Taking place between July and September this year, the course will explore topics including the life cycles of plants, the impacts of plant choices and an introduction to plant science.

Chris Edgar, management trainee, who successfully completed the course last year and has now gone on to study the RHS Level 3 qualification says the course was “a great way of gaining a good deal of insight” into the industry.

“The course as a whole is an invaluable tool to expand horticultural knowledge.”

With sites located just 12 miles apart, Johnsons Nurseries and Askham Bryan have been working together since the 1970s, with Johnsons providing work placements for students, while the college provides horticultural courses for its staff.

This year’s horticulture training course marks the second consecutive year of its running.
