As part of the first ever National Gardening Week, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) hosted ‘Horticulture: A Career to be Proud Of’ on Wednesday 18 April 2012. A recent RHS survey highlighted that the image of Horticultural careers need an urgent image makeover and government recognition. School careers advisors, students and colleges sat alongside MPs and renowned gardeners, including key-note speaker Alan Titchmarsh, to decide what should be done to promote the diversity of horticultural careers.

    So how can I get involved? I'm 21, love nature but don't have any experience or knowledge about plants but I think it's an awesome career. How do I begin, and what could I do that doesn't involve necessarily "landscape" but more like just growing and taking care of plants to sell them and stuff like that?

    Started my first horticulture job last year after a series of bad jobs — was under the impression that working was an unfortunate but necessary part of life until I started working at a nursery. Absolutely fell in love with caring for the plants and helping people find what they need for their gardens. I'm just so happy to have found something that makes me happy, and that going to work is something to look forward to. Maybe I won't make much money, but I know this is the career path for me. It's just something I'll never grow tired of & something I'll always be learning more about.
