Gardens & Greenhouses – Horticulture Course Facilities at Northumberland College

Gardens and Greenhouses


When you study a horticulture training course at our Kirkley Hall College Campus, you will have extensive grounds as your outdoor classroom.

Our college gardens exceed four hectares and include the National Fagus (Beech Tree) Collection, a Victorian walled garden, a large collection of unusual trees, shrubs, herbaceous and ornamental borders, sunken and woodland gardens and 1,330m2 of amenity and commercial greenhouses.

There is a dedicated garden design studio with high specification computers and the latest CAD design software where our budding landscape gardeners can get the very best in design practice and training.
