The QQI Level 5 horticulture course in Galway Community College offers students the chance to acquire a vast knowledge of many different aspects of the amazing world of horticulture. Huge emphasis is placed on plant identification and students spend some time each week learning and identifying new plants.

Green habits, green pots and lots of lovely green leaves

Tue, Apr 23, 2019

The gentlemen with whom I share my home (one husband and one child) are disinclined, at the best of times, to partake of vegetables of any description, and though they might be tolerated as a necessary evil occasionally – on top of a pizza, for instance – salad leaves of any kind seem to give rise to a red line. They are, after all, food for rabbits – and I suppose I must have been a rabbit in a former life because they are one of my absolute favourite things. It winds me up though, that the only way to buy them is usually as a whole head of one kind of lettuce – boring! – or as a mixture in a bag – much more interesting and delicious, but it’s hard to get through a whole bag by yourself before they get limp and lifeless, and I hate waste. So this week I’ve been planting my own ‘cut and come again’ lettuce.
