Horticulture Course Feedback Form Step 1 of 7 14% THANK YOU for being part of our course. This form is asking you to provide any constructive feedback you are prepared to give. Whilst we always appreciate positive feedback, it’s just as important to know where we can improve. When giving feedback, please be as constructive and as detailed as possible.

Conversely, “didn’t meet my expectations” doesn’t tell us where we could improve.We take your feedback very seriously and act upon honest and constructive feedback in an effort to improve what we do. Your comments can remain anonymous if you wish, but if you provide opportunities for improvement or a complaint, we do ask you to provide your name and contact details, then we are able to inform you of the improvements to our systems.Again, thank you for being part of the course.
