As a past Science Teacher I am thrilled to hear that Horticulture is to be included in the national Curriculum from September 2014.
This will be for children from 5–14 years.
The skills and knowledge that the study of Horticulture give are very valuable.
They include knowledge of plants, food production and health issues.
The RHS has been campaigning for this for10 years .
This is something to celebrate!
