Subject Information

A career in horticulture has something to offer everyone, whatever their academic ability as the work can be technical and creative, using personal skills or the very latest technology.

Bridgwater & Taunton College has courses to meet all your needs, whether full or part-time, and outstanding facilities such as The Walled Garden of Cannington or the latest environmentally controlled greenhouses. Did you know that there are over 18 million gardeners in the UK spending over £2 billion?

Our Cannington Centre has a renowned reputation for the training of horticulture students and much investment has been placed in the facilities for the subject. The Walled Gardens of Cannington are in the grounds of the former priory and are open to the public, having been officially launched by HRH Prince Edward in April 2009. With a botanical glasshouse, plant shop, tea rooms and extensive gardens, it makes an outstanding facility for horticulture students, as well as a great visitor attraction.
