Diplomas presented by RHS School of Horticulture
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is presenting 21 diplomas and certificates to the charity's trainee gardeners at RHS Garden Wisley today. Nine students will receive the Wisley Diploma in Practical Horticulture, a further five Wisley Trainees receive the charity's Special Options Certificates and another seven from our gardens at Hyde Hall, Harlow Carr and Rosemoor will be presented with the RHS Certificate in Practical Horticulture.
"This year's recipients have been exceptional," says James Rudoni, RHS Director of Gardens. "We are really proud of everyone who has received an Award today. They have worked so hard and we know that they will be great ambassadors for the RHS in the future."
TV presenter, James Wong is the guest speaker at this awards ceremony. James will be talking about how his initial training helped him in his future career. James says "It's so exciting to see a whole new generation of plant experts let loose on the world. The RHS Diploma is the gold standard in horticultural expertise, which puts these guys at the head of the pack in this dynamic, ever-changing industry."
The RHS has a wide programme of courses both for individuals looking for professional training to further develop their knowledge and skills, and for those who just want to extend their horticultural knowledge and be able to garden better. For those interested in furthering their professional gardening career, the RHS runs full time, hands-on practical courses at its 4 gardens - Wisley in Surrey, Hyde Hall in Essex, Harlow Car in Yorkshire and Rosemoor in Devon. These courses combine academic study with working as part of our Curatorial teams. Gardeners with an RHS Diploma or Certificate in Practical Horticulture are recognised as having the industry's finest training and are highly regarded by those in the horticultural field.
As well as the RHS Diplomas and Certificates there will be additional prizes awarded today, amongst them the Plant Heritage prize which is given to the two Trainee Gardeners who have attained the highest marks in the Plant Identification Tests. The winners this year are Wisley Trainee Elizabeth Mills and Rosemoor Trainee Juliet Stubbington. This award is sponsored by the Surrey Group of Plant Heritage.
