SRUC Oatridge Campus provides a huge range of facilities for budding gardeners to learn their craft, from formal landscaped plantings, to streamside and woodland gardens.
Year after year, staff and students of SRUC have won major prizes at Gardening Scotland, the country's premier show of horticultural excellence. Their large, formal plots, quirky environmentally-friendly designs and tiny pallet gardens are testimony to the quality of teaching and training, as well as a huge amount of hard work.
Throughout the year the campus is enhanced by stunning, seasonal planting, created and maintained by students, under the guidance of their tutors. Well equipped workshops, glasshouses, polythene and net tunnels, nursery and sales area provide additional hands-on experience, as do projects out in the community. Students build on their knowledge with a programme of visits to botanical gardens and other centres. Horticultural technology and garden design are catered for in computer and drawing suites.
