Lecturer and garden designer Sue Hayward has blended ideas from each of the 18 first-year students to create a design that features climbing plants, a thatched birdhouse and rustic brick path.
NTU environment technician Paul Wright has led the team through painstaking preparation, tending to plants and constructing each of the features that will be incorporated in the final garden.
The university's glasshouses, shade tunnels and polytunnels have been used to encourage many of the plants to mature early.
With the final mock-up of the design complete, the process of dismantling and transporting the garden will now begin. The entire team will be making their way to Harrogate for 10 days of construction, planting and judging at the show, on 23-26 April.
Horticulture lecturer Caroline Thomas said: "Everybody involved has worked really hard. Every tiny aspect of the design is important but each of the students has proved themselves to have the dedication and attention to detail that's needed to create a special garden like this. We're all really proud to be heading to Harrogate."
