Hortus Homicida garden design

Our Garden Design students, preparing for Gardening Scotland later this year, have produced the concept sketch for their show garden, entitled Hortus Homicida.

The garden is based on the Kirk O’ Fields sketch produced in 1567.


Heath Urquhart tends to his plants as a mysterious cloaked figure stalks him in the background.

Produced by project leader Heath Urquhart, this detailed drawing gives us an exciting glimpse at what to expect from this year’s Gardening Scotland event, and SRUC’s follow-up to the premier gold award-winning Hive Jive Show Garden from 2016.

You can keep up to date with the project’s latest developments over on the Hortus Homicida Facebook page.
