Overview

About the Course

As a student on the Horticulture with Plantsmanship course at the Scotland's Rural College (SRUC) you will benefit from the considerable resources and expertise of both organisations.

Recent reports identifying future skills gaps have noted that there will be a shortage of people in the UK with botanical abilities in plant identification, and also with knowledge of techniques appropriate to the restoration of historic gardens at a high level.
