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

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.
We have had a presence in Russia for over fifteen years. Our Russian partner, Floreal, is based in Moscow where our colleagues Lidia Podyablonskaya and Nadezhda Dobrovskaya run a very successful school enterprise teaching Garden Design, Horticulture and Flower Arranging. Using one of Rosemary Alexander’s books translated into Russian, their Garden Design course attracts students from many different regions of the USSR including Siberia. Rosemary visits regularly and gives Master Classes in Moscow to diverse and very enthusiastic group.
Floreal also brings Russian students over to the Chelsea Flower Show, often culminating in a five day Garden Tour led by Rosemary.
