The world's first online gardening school

MyGardenSchool is the world's first online gardening school where students can learn from top gardening experts about how to do absolutely everything in the garden from keeping bees or hens, landscaping, design, growing vegetables and herbs, building treehouses or growing the perfect roses. And everything in between. Take a four week online gardening course in any subject of your choice - they all start on the first Saturday of the month. All of our tutors are outstanding in their field (and gardens), being accomplished gardeners and acclaimed gardening writers. Our online gardening courses are four weeks long, and video tutorials are delivered weekly, together with course notes and assignments that will be assessed by your tutor. You also get to chat to your tutor online during your online gardening course, as well as your classmates, in the 'virtual classroom'. MyGardenSchool will teach you everything about gardening – virtually. But don't take our word for it - check out our course pages here.
