What is Horticulture?

  • Horticulture is the art and science of cultivating plants

  • In simpler terms, it's about growing all sorts of plants, from fruits and vegetables we eat to flowers that beautify our gardens

  • Plant Production: This is the core of horticulture, encompassing the growing of various plants for different purposes.

  • Variety is Key: Horticulture deals with a wide range of plants, including fruits, vegetables, flowers, ornamental trees and shrubs, turfgrass, nuts, and even medicinal plants.

  • More Than Just Farming: While agriculture focuses on large-scale production of crops, horticulture often deals with smaller-scale, intensive cultivation, with a focus on both food and aesthetics.

  • Science and Art: Horticulturists apply scientific principles like plant biology, soil science, and pest management to grow healthy plants

  • But there's also a creative aspect to horticulture, involving garden design and plant selection for visual appeal.
