Plants, crops, and green spaces provide us with nutritious food, which sustains and enriches our lives. Horticulture is the science and art of producing, developing, marketing, and using high-value, intensively farmed food and ornamental plants in a sustainable manner. Horticulture has a daily impact on our lives by providing nutritional fruits and vegetables, providing visual pleasure, and encouraging recreational activities.
Floriculture is a branch of ornamental horticulture that focuses on the cultivation, sale, and exhibition of flowers and ornamental plants. Flowers and potted plants are typically grown in temperate climates in plant growing systems, while some flowers are grown outdoors in crop fields and nurseries.
