Horticulture 1, 2 and 3

These are courses in plant science associated with the areas of horticulture and floriculture.  Students raise plants for themselves and for sale in the school's greenhouse.  They learn how to reproduce plants and make flower arrangements.  In the greenhouse laboratory they grow poinsettias, mums and many other common greenhouse plants.  Fifty percent of class time is spent in laboratory activities.  Class activities  include corsage making, table arrangement, landscaping, holiday decoration making, spring flower and vegetable production.

Second level students concentrate in advanced areas including greenhouse management, production of commerical greenhouse crops, landscape maintenance, advanced floral design and pesticide safety.

At the third level, students concentrate in laboratory experiences in the greenhouse, flower shop and outdoors.  Management skills, marketing and landscape drawing are also stressed.
