In September 2014 I started my RHS Level 2 Course with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, and today, a year later, I’ve received my grades. I passed all eight exams and was lucky enough – to my amazement – to have been given commendations in seven of them 😀 I’m a bit in shock as it’s sinking in. It was a year of hard study and I loved every second of it. I can’t recall ever working so hard for any other subject at school or University.
Thank you to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, RHS and everyone on my course who helped me and encouraged me 🙂
To celebrate, above is a photo of one of my fave bits in the garden right now, a very healthy looking Brunnera macrophylla ‘Mr Morse’ surrounded by the purple leaves of Heuchera ‘Licorice’. All of which were divisions from other plants I took last winter.
