Do you find yourself questioning what certain terms in horticulture mean? Do you find plant and pot sizing unclear? When quoting, are you unsure of what certain types of information mean? If so, then this mini-workshop will unlock all this key information and is perfect for you.

This course is aimed at anyone entering the horticultural industry for the first time or who is currently involved in placing quotation requests, orders or working with specifications in their present role. We will be looking at the relevance and meaning of certain horticultural terms, the context in which they are used and how they can be used most effectively in your work.

Descriptive terms like ‘Type’, ‘Form’, ‘Size’ and ‘Spread’ will be explained as well as terminology used in picking, packaging and delivery. Each stage of the enquiry process will be dealt with, from sending a quotation to placing your order; from requesting a delivery to receiving your goods. We believe this course will unlock the jargon and will leave you confident in the knowledge you have gained and fully prepared to apply it to your future work.

'A horticultural jargon buster' will cover the following topics:
- scientific names and their meaning
- plant groups
- forms and types
- bulbs - what's in a size?
- containers and size guide
- information about bare rooted and root balled trees or shrubs
- specifications

This is a free to attend course taking place on-site here at Palmstead on Wednesday 20 February 2019.
