The Chartered Institute of Horticulture is able to grant the right to use the title of Chartered Horticulturist to those members who fulfil the criteria and conditions laid down by Council.

Why become a Chartered Horticulturist

 

To apply to become a Chartered Horticulturist, you must

Grand-parenting

If you were a paid-up Member or Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture on the 31 December 2014, you can apply to be granted the title of Chartered Horticulturist under the grand-parenting scheme. This means that you only have to complete the relevant forms, and will not be called for an interview.

Key dates

  • In order to apply under grand-parenting rules, Members or Fellows must be paid-up by 31 December 2014. Note that this means that if you were in your six month free period of membership on 31 December 2014, you will not be able to apply under grand-parenting rules.
  • Applications for Chartered Horticulturist status from existing paid-up Members and Fellows as defined above will be accepted by the Secretariat under the grand-parenting rules from 31 January 2015.
  • The cut-off date for applications to be received under the grand-parenting rules will be 31 July 2016.
  • For those who do not qualify to apply under the grand-parenting rules, applications will be accepted from 1 May 2015.

Fees

1. One-off Validation Fee to be paid on submission of the application

  • Under grand-parenting rules: £50
  • Under non-grand-parenting rules: £115
  • Note that these fees will be non-refundable, as the Institute will have incurred the fixed administration costs whatever the result of the application.

2. Annual Fee to maintain Chartered Horticulturist status: £100

  • This fee is in addition to the usual membership subscription at whichever of Member or Fellow grade applies.
  • The fee will be pro-rata for the first year of membership to bring the payment date in line with the members existing subscription renewal date.
