2 weeks to go!


Well in about two weeks time I sit my final RHS Exam at level 2.
So I have been revising and craming and going over old ground as well as trying to remember as many Latin plant names as possible, not to mention weeds as well.

So no longer are they Groundsel (Senecio vulgaris) or Annual meadow grass (Poa annua). Some are easy to remember than others.

The plants, well if the questions are right I shall be fine but if they are something I have missed or not dedicated enough time to then I could be in trouble.

Any way fingers crossed.

Not to give up there I am in the process of enrolling on a Foundation Degree in Garden Design, which starts in September.

Some would say a gluten for punishment but, I am really looking forward to it.

Anyway enough skiving for now and back to the books.

Thanks for the support guys.

good luck Trees-- you'll be fine I'm sure. I remember when I did the NCH I loved the plant ident bit--- weeds are a bit trickier but its amazing when you see a thing it comes to you where you saw it and what its called !

I am student at Capel Manor College in Enfield, London. It's very lovely place, fantastic gardens - I am so happy I was made redundant 2 year ago, so I could start my course....
and of course - if I can help with anything....:-)
