Horticulture is the science, art, technology, and business concerned with intensively cultivated plants that are used by
people for food, for medicinal purposes, and for asthetic gratification. Horticulture is divided into two categories:
The cultivation of plants for food (pomology and olericulture): 1. Pomology deals with fruit and nut crops. (not included
in photography classes) 2. Olericulture deals with herbaceous plants for the kitchen, including, for example, carrots
(edible roots), asparagus (edible stem), lettuce (edible leaf), cauliflower (edible flower), tomatoes (edible fruit), and peas
(edible seed). (included in photography classes)

Plants for ornament (floriculture and landscape horticulture). 1. Floriculture deals with the production of flowers and
ornamental plants; generally, cut flowers, pot plants, and greenery. (included in photography classes) 2. Landscape
