Horticulture is both a science and an art. Horticultural careers can include propagation and cultivation, landscape plans, fruits, vegetables, annuals and perennials, as well as nursery stock for nurseries and garden centers. Careers in integrated pest management deal with proper plant care and the prevention and control of plant diseases and insects. Employment opportunities also exist in the areas of plant and fertilizer development. Grounds maintenance is a rapidly growing area of employment in the horticulture field. The greenhouse industry employs horticulturists to propagate fresh flowers, cuttings, annuals, and foliage plants.
