A proud history of nurturing your passion for plants
Founded in the 1930’s, the HCC was one of the first specialist horticultural distance-learning colleges and has made learning about this popular subject accessible to thousands of people.
Our flexible courses can be studied where you want and when you want, making it easy to fit study around your life and work commitments.
HCC learners are of all ages, backgrounds and levels of experience, and based in all sorts of locations (from oil rigs to the Far East). We have helped people retrain for new careers they love, boost their horticultural careers with advanced qualifications, and learn more about their favourite hobby.
Our former principal Oliver Menhinick, recognised for his contribution to horticultural education with awards including an MBE, sadly passed away in 2013. We are proud to carry on his work.
