Horticulture is about plant agriculture, garden crops, fruits, vegetables, ornamental plants, herbs, trees, and landscapes. The industry of Horticulture deals with gardening on a much smaller scale for example in garden centres, enclosed spaces, and covered spaces.

Horticulture involves three different areas which are known as: Pomology, Olericulture, and Ornamental Horticulture. Pomology is about the planting, harvesting, processing, storing, and marketing of fruit and crops. Olericulture is actually the same as Pomology, but it is more related to vegetable crops. Lastly, Ornamental horticulture is split into two categories know as Floriculture and landscape horticulture. Floriculture is flowering for gardens and for floristry. Landscape horticulture is about the landscaping of gardens and the design of them.

There are many career options that are available within the Horticultural industry which include Gardeners, Plant Specialists, Landscapers, Growers, Researchers, Pest Control, and so much more.
