The Garden is an inspirational, natural outdoor classroom for all ages; a place to develop knowledge, encourage creativity and bring learning to life.

We welcome visits to the Garden from schools and colleges in all seasons and offer imaginative learning opportunities across the curriculum and key stages.

Science and Plants for Schools (SAPS) is dedicated to encouraging and supporting science teachers through resources, skills training and practical experiments designed to bring plants into the Classroom.
The Garden offers a lively programme of formal courses, talks and other events. These cover horticulture, plant identification, botanical illustration and creative workshops. For families, there's a great choice of activities throughout the year and in the holidays that encourage exploration of the natural world.

The Garden is committed to training and supporting the next generation of expert horticulturalists. Each year we offer six horticultural trainees places on the Cambridge Certificate in Practical Horticulture and Plantsmanship.
