Delivered jointly by SRUC and The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE), this course is strongly focused on ‘plantsmanship’ — the area of horticulture that covers knowledge of the diversity of plants and their cultivation.

It also provides a good understanding of other aspects of horticulture and plant science, integrating the management of plant collections with knowledge of plant distribution, classification, diversity, structure, identification, recognition and cultivation.
