“I’ve always had great satisfaction from growing plants and enjoyed my pre entry work experience with Inver Garden Centre. However, it was when I came to study at Greenmount that I realised the range of opportunities in other areas, such as garden design and maintenance, sportsturf and landscape gardening. I was offered full-time employment when I finished the Level 2 Diploma but I decided to continue my studies on the Level 3 Extended Diploma at Greenmount. The Level 3 is challenging but I’ve managed to keep up with the coursework and I’ve had the opportunity to compete in National Landscape Gardening Competitions. I’ve now secured a place on the UK Squad and I’m training for team selection. I’ve now a real chance of competing in the World Final in Russia in 2019.”
