A Career in Horticulture

Demand for Horticulturalists in the UK has risen, due to the increase in horticultural production and many employers in the industry are welcoming anyone with the right skills and attitude. This is because as older and vastly experienced horticulturists retire, new people with the right knowledge need to replace them. Because of the demand, completing a course through us will open up opportunities for work in many areas of horticulture, including gardening, garden design, landscaping, grounds management, plant protection, plant pathology and flower production, just to name a few.

The horticultural industry embraces everything that involves growing plants; from gardening and landscaping to vegetable and fruit production. The best way to guarantee long term career success may be to ensure your initial training is broad based, and you have the capacity to move with relative ease from one industry sector to another as demand shift

In addition, an increasing number of horticultural jobs are becoming linked to public contracts, so it is essential for businesses to show that their employees can meet the criteria by obtaining formal qualifications.

So a career in Horticulture is both fulfilling and rewarding, allowing the opportunity to contribute to the quality of life both at home and abroad. Horticulture is a huge industry with diverse job opportunities in the commercial or environmental sectors as well as in research and journalism.
