Horticulture is the branch of agriculture that deals with the art, science, technology, and business of growing plants.

It also includes plant conservation, landscape restoration, landscape and garden design, construction, and maintenance, and Arboriculture. Inside agriculture, horticulture contrasts with extensive field farming as well as animal husbandry.

Horticulturists apply their knowledge, skills, and technologies used to grow intensively produced plants for human food and non-food uses and for personal or social needs. Their work involves plant propagation and cultivation with the aim of improving plant growth, yields, quality, nutritional value, and resistance to insects, diseases, and environmental stresses.
