A career in horticulture could include landscaping beautiful park designs, studying plant ecology in the Amazon or developing and researching new food crops.

The roots of a great career

Getting practical and involved is the key to becoming a great horticulturist. You will develop your creative and technical skills at our purpose built horticultural facilities at Common Leys Farm. Each day will present new, exciting challenges working within the specialist nursery areas and poly tunnels as well as the great plant identification and care areas. There will also be plenty of opportunities to hone your professional skills with the wide range of horticultural tools and machinery on site.
