Floristry & Land-based Studies

Benefit from dedicated workshops to develop your creative skills, preparing artistic displays and bouquets for customers and events.

Study either floristry or horticulture. In both subjects you will develop hands-on practical skills and the theory you need to progress towards a creative and satisfying career. Horticulture students will develop their knowledge of plants, soil science and turfing, with hands-on experience working in one of our purpose built polytunnels and on real horticultural projects.

Enjoy trips to national floristry and horticultural shows, take part in competitions and learn from industry guest speakers.

We are looking forward to you joining us in September when you start your journey towards creating an outstanding future.
