Horticulture is an extremely diverse industry, including jobs ranging from simple gardening jobs to more scientific roles such as:
- Irrigation/spraying jobs
- Landscape architecture
- Garden centre management
- Growing fruits and vegetables
- Management and maintenance of botanic gardens
- Landscape/designing gardens
- Plant care
- Plant pathology
- Ornamental horticulture
So, there are lots of incredible opportunities to consider. A career in horticulture is a stable one too and offers many opportunities to diversify and specialise in other areas. The jobs available in the industry can be greatly beneficial for people, as it gives people a real sense of purpose due to its more practical and hands-on approach to work.
The workspace is also generally very good, as most of the time you would work outdoors and have a much more natural work environment than other, more office based jobs. This connection with nature can improve people's mental health and build up happiness and because of this, it is a career that can be extremely satisfying to many people.
