Student Feedback

"If you are really serious about becoming a garden designer, you put the work in and are able to feign confidence in the real world, this course will certainly help you down the professional route."

"There was a good quality and variety of speakers"

"Exactly what I wanted and able to adapt it to run my own small design business"

"The lectures were packed with information but very relaxed. Discussions, questions, anecdotes and having a laugh were all part of it. I really looked forward to my Fridays. Coursework was tough, but I was lucky to have had a day and a half free to work on projects, I would strongly recommend thinking hard about what you are taking on if you don't have much time to spare" Sarah Ashworth

"So..why choose Nigel's Philip's Diploma in Professional Garden Design at Plumpton? I have a busy gardening and landscaping business which has been established over 10 years. I was finding that more of my new customers were asking for their garden to be designed and I felt that I lacked the relevant skills. When choosing which design course it was very important to me that the principal tutor was an experienced and active garden designer firmly connected to the world of small business. I have not been disappointed. Whatever your interest you will find this course challenging, stimulating, exciting and interesting. If you would like to ask me a question my email address is"

"A fantastic course for the enthusiast wanting to take their knowledge and experience to the professional level. There is a lot of work to make this course affective for your future. I don't recommend working full time whilst doing this course!" Ann Christian
