Follow our tried and tested Garden Design Formula

The Great Garden Formula is our professional level garden design course. It’s designed for aspiring garden designers as well as qualified designers wishing to improve their skills. It's also suitable for serious home gardeners who really want to learn all there is to know about garden design. The course is suitable for complete beginners but it is a BIG course, so if you’re looking for something quick to do in a weekend, then the mini-courses might be better options (such as the Small or Fast-Track Garden Formulas).
