Horticulture

Summary

Horticulture is defined as the scientific and artistic curation of plants.2 One of the oldest national gardening organizations in the United States is the American Horticultural Society (AHS). The AHS releases horticulture publications, gardening classes and other educational programs throughout the calendar year, as do many other horticultural societies across the U.S.1 Horticulturalists and gardeners care for food supply, as well as recreational gardens, and are trained to care for, develop and breed specialty plants species.3 Globally, the horticulture industry produced 676.9 million metric tons of fruits like bananas, tropical, citrus and stone fruits in 2013, totaling in $105.26 billion of fruit imports around the world.4 Show References
