Commercial Horticulture

For people who enjoy gardening to create saleable produce, we offer you Commercial Horticulture. This can be in conjunction with an ASDAN Employability course, or as part of the Social & Therapeutic Horticulture option.

Within this enterprise you can expect to learn about how to sow, plant, cultivate and harvest fruit, vegetables and flowering plants, aswell as design hanging baskets and planters etc for sale to the public.

You will also learn about how to use tools and PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) effectively. This Enterprise offers an opportunity to work together as a team and enjoy social aspects of gardening. The group(s) are led by fully qualified subject specialist staff and experienced support staff.
