​​​​Admission: Courses run by Passiflora Ltd (this does not include the BVAH) are available to everybody over the age of 18 and at the discretion of the course tutors.​​ 

Iris Bannochie created a garden with dual roles - a pleasure garden and a botanic garden.
​Andromeda Botanic Gardens will continue to delight visitors with its undeniable beauty and will fulfil its role as a botanic garden, defined as follows:
​​"Botanic gardens are institutions holding documented collections of living plants for the purposes of scientific research, conservation, display and education.
International Agenda for Botanic Gardens in Conservation
Gardeners from the Sandy Lane Hotel, our intern and another course participant are working on their final project for the Planting and Garden Design Course.
​Applications are welcome from all students, including those from overseas, wishing to gain practical horticultural and/or design experience. Students take part in a range of activities at Andromeda. They also get the opportunity to visit other gardens.
