Other countries are adopting our teaching methods. We very much enjoy teaching abroad and have found that the mutual passion for gardens and gardening knows no boundaries. Our Distance Learning Courses, written by Rosemary Alexander, allow English speaking students anywhere to study with us.

Japan

The Japan Herb School offers a Home Study Course in Garden Design based on translation of one of Rosemary’s books. Run by Mrs Yukata Onoe, The Japan Herb School also offers courses in Herbal Medicine, Horticultural Therapy, and Aromatherapy.

USA

We have been approached by Chelsea Gardens, Norwich, Connecticut to advise on setting up a similar educational establishment within the proposed Botanic Garden there. Currently consisting of 80 of the 400 acres of prime, natural land in Norwich’s historic Mohegan Park, Chelsea Gardens’ mission is to create a world class year round self-supporting botanical garden with a strong teaching emphasis. Having now twice been involved in preliminary discussions and site visits, we hope to make some of our expertise available within the USA.

For details contact Hugh Schnip at Chelsea Gardens, PO Box 810, Norwich, CT 06360 USA or visit their website: www.chelseagardens.org.

Russia

We have had a presence in Russia for over fifteen years. Our current Russian partner, Green Arrow (green-arrow@list.ru) is based in St Petersburg. In 2012 Rosemary Alexander was the first person from the UK to be invited to give a 2 day Master class in Ukraine, following this with several in Moscow and St.Petersburg. In September 2013 Rosemary will lead a tour of Scottish gardens for students from the Russian school Green Arrow. A new profession in Russia, the Garden Design courses attract diverse and enthusiastic students from many different regions including Siberia.
