Demand for Horticulturalists in the UK has risen. Partially due to the increase need of horticultural production, in particular within emerging industrial countries such as China and India. Many employers in the industry are welcoming anyone with the right skills and attitude. An increasing number of horticultural jobs are becoming linked to public contracts, so it is essential for businesses to show that their employees can meet the criteria by obtaining formal qualifications.
