Course Description

Gardening – Diploma Training Course in Gardening

Kilroy’s College

Gardening is one of the fastest growing leisure pastimes for many good, practical reasons as well as the sense of enjoyment of it. There are many sound economic and organic reasons for getting the most out of your garden. Vegetables and fruit s taste better when they come from your own garden. There are good reasons why this is not a myth. Fruit and vegetables sold in the Supermarkets are generally subject to maximum production techniques which concentrate more on yield per acre than on consistently good quality and flavour.
