What is the Difference between Horticulture and Agriculture?

Horticulture and Agriculture are both terms used to describe the growth of products. Therefore, it’s no surprise that so many of us get them confused with each other. The two key differences are:

  • Horticulture usually relates to small-scale projects, typically in a domestic environment and is sometimes referred to as “garden farming”
  • Agriculture, on the other hand, is usually much larger, typically in big fields and is probably part of commercial farming
  • Horticulture involves the growth of both foodstuff and non-stuff, including decorative flowers and plants that are grown for medicines
  • Agriculture is purely foodstuff that is likely to be sold in a commercial setting such as your local supermarket

Why is Horticulture important to Garden Design?

Horticulture plays a key role in garden design, as you need to pick a good spot that will ensure that your crops get enough sunshine. You also need to ensure that you include the best products in with your landscaping plans.

Getting the right products for Horticulture is crucial, because if the seeds are not given the best environment to thrive with plenty of nutrients to feed off, they are not going to be able to grow to their full potential.
