HORTIKULTURA a celebration of Plants and Arts Festival

Horticulture is the science and art of growing (plants) – fruits, vegetables, flowers, and any other cultivar. It also includes plant conservation, landscape restoration, soil management, landscape and garden design, construction, and maintenance, and arboriculture. In contrast to agriculture, horticulture does not include large-scale crop production or animal husbandry.

I Love Plants no matter what the shape and color it is... if only i had my own huge garden i would love to grow different plants, flowers and event vegetables if could. 

Nowadays living int he metro with all the hustle and bustle of pollution and noise i came to realize while i take a glance of all the beautiful indigenous & hybrid plants how do they manage to breathe a clean air because i do believe they also have lives and needs a clean air to breathe as well as water and sunshine to keep them alive. And then seeing all of those masterpieces made me think still that what a wonderful world we live in having those little work of art in a form of plants...

How rare do we find plants that are rare and can only be found in a certain area such as one of which is Waling-waling that is proudly found only in the Philippines and no where in the world.

What is a Horticulturists

Their work involves plant propagation and cultivation with the aim of improving plant growth, yields, quality, nutritional value, and resistance to insects, diseases, and environmental stresses. They work as gardeners, growers, therapists, designers, and technical advisors in the food and non-food sectors of horticulture.
