GET A QUALIFICATION IN BOTH HORTICULTURE AND PROPAGATION AND BE A PROPAGATION EXPERT
Specialist propagators are always in demand in the nursery industry.
ACS student comments: I have learnt so much from this course. I have learnt how easy and how much material strikes and grows, if you follow the rules. I learnt to propagate bulb leaves and grow them on. There are so many more plants that can be propagated and its not hard to do. I hope more people take up the challenge. As I don't have the internet, it's good to be able to use what may be an old fashioned way of learning. Please don't change, I don't think I'm the only one wanting to elearn without the internet.
