The certification is designed for those working in the horticulture industry or studying to enter the field.
Not just your standard-issue course textbook, FNGLA’s FCHP manual is an excellent resource and informational tool for troubleshooting and answering questions involving proper plant use, plant problems and landscape management.
Trainings are available at a variety of locations across the state. For more information, check out FNGLA's event calendar.
