About MyGardenSchool Online Gardening Courses

MyGardenSchool is the world’s first online horticulture school. We provide online gardening courses by some of the greatest horticulturists and garden designers in the world. Each online gardening class is carefully designed to meet different levels of the students’ understanding – ranging from passionate amateurs through to professional garden designers and horticulturists. MyGardenSchool students come from all over the world, as all our online gardening courses are taken from the comfort of your own home.

MyGardenSchool online horticulture classes are not the same as gardening correspondence courses or studying horticulture by distance learning. They are a fully interactive learning experience, with the following benefits:

  • Four weeks personal tuition from an expert in the virtual classroom
  • Recorded video lectures from world gardening experts (released weekly during your online course)
  • Assignments which are critiqued by your expert tutor – most students find this feedback one of the most valuable aspects of their online gardening course
  • Magazine style downloadable notes (your own four part ebook of the course)
  • All this is done within ‘MyClassRoom’ – your own virtual, community based global classroom
  • Vibrant social network communities
  • At the end of your course, you will receive a certificate of completion and an online badge (available for you to use on your own blogs and websites)

We continue to add new online gardening courses most months. We hope you enjoy your course!
