The bee inspired "Hive Jive" garden designed and created by 2nd year students at SRUC's Edinburgh Campus was the only gold award among the eight show gardens.
The students' entry aimed to promote gardening for bees and other wildlife, which in turn benefits people. The design highlighted the bees' crucial value in the pollination of important food crops.
Over 1,500 plants were used in the prize-winning garden design - with some raised from seed in SRUC greenhouses and others sourced from supportive suppliers.
The "Hive Jive" design was the brainchild of mature student Joan Sayers with a team of 10 students creating the garden.
Sayers said: "Our design uses plants rich in the pollen nectar bees need and promotes the minimum use of chemicals. The garden also informs visitors about the simple steps that can be taken to help these insects thrive.
"The whole structure of the design suggests a bee hive. The roof has been planted to demonstrate how unconventional spaces can be used to green up gardens and benefit both wildlife and human health.
"It has been exciting to see the show garden come together. Just like bees do in the hive, the team has really worked together and have learnt lots about the organisation, preparation and timing which has been vital to creating our successful show garden."
