Senior Landscape Architect Natalie Graham gains RHS Principals of Horticulture Level 2 qualification

A huge congratulations to Senior Landscape Architect Natalie Graham, who has recently completed the RHS Principles of Horticulture Level 2 qualification, passing with a commendation in three of the modules.

The one-year part-time course covers modules in principles of plant growth, propagation and development, garden planning, establishment and maintenance. For all of the modules, Natalie, based in our Leeds studio, had to learn examples of each type of planting group or application, including suitable locations, plan requirements, establishment, maintenance and pests/ diseases. This involved learning around 200 plant species across all the exams – very impressive!

Natalie will use this knowledge to continue to help Gillespies lead the way in delivering resilient, habitat-based planting schemes.

Congratulations Natalie!
