James River Nurseries would like to congratulate Robbie Layne, a valued employee, for passing the exam to become a Virginia Certified Horticulturist (VCH). This rigorous four-hour exam typically takes up to 6 months to prepare for and covers a broad range of horticulture subjects including basic botany, soils and fertilization, diseases, pesticides, plant propagation, trees and shrubs, perennials and annuals, landscape design as well as many other related topics.
"The VCH designation offers many benefits to businesses and consumers as well. Consumers are assured they will receive professional services from a capable associate and the confidence that any business employing a VCH certified employee is a credible source for their nursery or landscaping needs."
The designation symbolizes the recipients desire to be informed on the latest developments in the industry allowing them to be well positioned to provide their clients with accurate and reliable information.
Here at James River Nurseries, we appreciate Robbie's continued interest in honing his skill and congratulate him on passing the exam to become a Virginia Certified Horticulturist!
