Horticulture apprentices can be employed to work in public parks and gardens, green spaces and historic gardens, private gardens and estates or in production nurseries and retail outlets.
The horticulture option focuses on plant propagation and plant growth.
Work is generally based outside and undertaken throughout the year, so apprentices will frequently work outside in all weathers.
A wide range of machinery and tools are used and additional training may be required depending on the nature of the works undertaken.
Working and learning in the horticulture offers a diverse range of employment opportunities and includes a range of skills that are transferable into many other industries.
