Discover the Wonderful World of Plants

The world would be a poor place without plants. They feed us, keep us warm and dry, clean our air and provide us with a diverse, beautiful, green environment in which to live. Now is a great time to be part of one of the largest industries in the UK. Working with plants offers diverse and varied career opportunities, from designing and building new parks and landscapes, looking after trees and forests, maintaining golf greens and football pitches, to developing new flower varieties and food crops.  If you are interested in science and business, creative arts, technology, education and research, or the environment and nature, then a career in horticulture could be part of your future.


The potential is vast and if you’re ambitious, there is real scope to progress in this industry, have a fantastic, worthwhile, enjoyable career and make a real difference to the future of our planet and the people and creatures who live on it.
