Lara Galley 

Level 3 Extended Diploma in Horticulture with Landscaping 2022

New Product Development Assistant, SuperFlora UK

“I was going to study for a degree but decided the university route wasn’t for me. I found my niche while working in a plant nursery and felt a recognised qualification would help me progress.  

“The horticultural industry is very exciting, with many opportunities across the sector. My course prepared me well because it offered both practical and academic sessions, from advanced technology in the glasshouses to turfing, block work and building design.  

“I now have an interesting job helping to develop products for leading supermarkets. My company supplies quality plants and pots for the home and patio, which is a fast growing area. I use both my horticultural and my design skills to help produce the latest ranges.”
