Why Did You Become a Horticulturist?

17 years ago


I'm set to get my University degree in horticulture and I have been wrestling with a lot of doubts. I am not sure if horticulture is going to be a viable occupation (from a financial perspective) in the future. I mean, everything has become so mechanized and industrialized, fewer people are needed for the same task. With that, a lot of the fun and challenge has been taken out as well. If you think otherwise, I'd love to hear your views.

I went into this field because of my love for plants and gardening. Is that your reason too? If it's been some years since, do you regret choosing this career or are you happy with it?
