This course has been specifically to teach individuals how to make the most of their herb gardens. By the end of the course you will be able to identify culinary herbs and utilise them effectively.

During the course of the qualification, you will learn how to identify certain plants and how to plant, feed an prune them. Students will discover the effects of different growing environments and compare common varieties of herbs. The course then goes on to describe the best ways to use herbs in your cooking.
