4-H Horticulture Handbook
If you like variety, you should love horticulture. In horticulture, we grow some plants for beauty, such as flowers, houseplants, ornamental shrubs, and trees. We also grow plants for food, such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, and herbs. We grow other plants for medicines, such as foxglove and periwinkle. Proper handling of plants requires a great deal of skill. This handbook will help you develop skills and knowledge in horticulture. The first section is for seniors only. The second section is for juniors and seniors. In the appendix you will find information on the horticulture judging contest.
