Helping you to explore the World of Plants - wherever you are!
Learn online with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh
We have a range of courses available at different times throughout the year, from short free courses, to short 'Getting started with' courses (start anytime) through to certificates and diplomas. We also have free resources for young people and teachers.
Our PropaGate platform allows you to access resources and tutor support together with chatting to your fellow learners using the discussion forums.
Why not try one of our free courses such as our 5 hour Plants and climate change course first?
Please note that Certificates and Diplomas have an application process, whereas you can simply register and pay for our short courses.

The RHS Level 2 Certificate in the Principles of Plant Growth and Development is fully subscribed for 2023, although you can sign up to receive updates about the next enrolment (likely to be in 2024).
