Cambo Gardens is based around a Victorian mansion house within a 70 acre designed landscape. The walled gardens has one of the largest collections of herbaceous plants in Scotland. We are leading practitioners in the field of contemporary naturalistic planting design.

The Student placement is practically based with an emphasis on design, plantsmanship and managing large plant collections. Additionally the student will gain experience in fruit and vegetables, propagation, and glasshouse management. The student will also gain an invaluable insight into the running and development of this progressive garden. The trainee will have many opportunities to manage other people.
