The competition will see them build a pre-designed garden individually, at the national careers showcase, The Skills Show, which opens tomorrow at the NEC, Birmingham.
The gardens may be built above or in-ground and include timber construction, walls, water features, paving, varying levels, turf and planting. The landscaper who wins the gold medal then gets a chance to represent Team GB at the world finals in Abu Dhabi in October next year.
Jacob Botting from Myerscough College, Aaron Byrne from Reaseheath College, Ross Conquest from Conquest Hard Landscaping, Josh Dow from SRUC Oatridge, Jonathan Long and Shea McFerren from CAFRE and Christopher Page from Dundee and Angus College are competing, after reaching the final of the competition after winning places at RHS Flower Show Tatton Park in July.
Chief executive of Worldskills UK Dr Neil Bentley said: "Our research shows that Worldskills UK Competitions teach young people the employability skills that businesses are crying out for. By devising and managing skills competitions that are based on international standards, we can ensure more young people are being equipped with the right skills to help UK businesses better compete globally."
Paul Mooney, head of horticulture at CAFRE, which has two students in the competition, said: "It is very pleasing to see the continued success of CAFRE students in the WorldSkills Landscape Gardening competitions and to have several CAFRE students once more competing in the UK Final at the Skills Show.
"It has been an incredible achievement for CAFRE as a college to have not alone had success in the national final but also to have had one CAFRE graduate selected to be part of the two man UK team for the last three WorldSkills Competitions which were held in London, 2012, Leipzeig in Germany, 2014 and Sao Paulo in Brazil, 2016.
"This is a real testament to the dedication of staff and students and the excellence of the landscaping tuition delivered at the college."
