Caley Master Gardener

Whilst expressions of interest are welcome, there are no plans for a Caledonian Master Gardener course in the immediate future.  If you would like to be sent information on the course when it becomes available, please email:

The Caledonian Master Gardener Programme is an innovative training and accreditation programme for Scottish gardeners with an interest and commitment to the promotion of gardening skills and horticultural knowledge through volunteering. The programme is led by the Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society with the support of others. The Caledonian Master Gardener Programme consists of fourteen class based modules, including soil science, botany, pruning and propagation conducted by industry professionals, plus 60 hours of approved volunteer activities. This programme is unique to Scotland.   Every Trainee Master Gardener will have the opportunity to experience a range of different horticultural settings:  an urban setting, horticulture within a Zoo, a botanic garden and a successful specialist retail nursery. Costs are kept to a minimum: Non refundable application £5; Course cost: £400 (10 x £41.50 if paid by standing order).
