Horticulture is usually described as both an art and a science. Understanding fundamental principles of plant physiology and basic botany combined with skill and intuition in employing these scientific principles ensures the maximum use and enjoyment of plants.
Botany is the study of plants and all facets of their structure and physiology. Horticulture is an applied science because it uses basic scientific principles, largely from botany, to develop practical technologies.
