I am delighted to announce the launch of the NEW Chartered Institute of Horticulture website.
This is a fresh, interactive and professional digital window to horticulture and our institute, so come on in and sees us in our new space!

We will be constantly updating our content with helpful information, articles, blogs, newsletters, announcements and member and activities.
