The School of Horticulture at Writtle College has just announced Sarah Tull as the inaugural successor of the Seabrook scholarship. Sarah, who has just completed her National Diploma (ND) in Horticulture, will receive £3,000 a year to attend the two-year Foundation degree in horticulture at the College. The scholarship, which was launched back in January this year, has been sponsored by Easy Gardener gardening products. The award has been named after Peter Seabrook who himself attended the College in the 1950’s achieving both the College Diploma and Royal Horticultural Society Master of Horticulture degree
Sarah, from Brentwood in Essex, will be taught at the College under the supervision of Martin Stimson, Head of the School of Horticulture, also a Royal Horticultural Society Master of Horticulture.
Sarah said; “I am very pleased to receive the Scholarship and am looking forward to having the chance to study the Foundation degree in Horticulture. I enjoyed my National Diploma Horticulture at Writtle very much and feel this is the next step for me. My aim after completing the course is to work in an historical garden or botanical garden.”As part of the ND course students are required to take an industrial placement year, Sarah gained the opportunity of working at Cobham Hall in Kent. The Hall is a historic school building with beautiful gardens, where Sarah excelled and received excellent reviews from her work there. Sarah has also been working at a family operated garden centre while completing her ND studies.
On her future Sarah commented; “I love working in horticulture and look forward to a long career in the industry.”
