Horticulture Group


The Group brings together horticulturists and others working within the horticulture industry, in particular those concerned with the transfer of horticultural science into business practice.


SCI’s Horticulture Technical Interest Group aims to assist the transfer of horticultural science in its broadest sense into business practice. We do this by providing career support for professionals as well as a forum for discussion and sharing of information on issues relevant to the full range of horticulture-related industries, public authorities, academics and other interested parties.

The Horticulture Group has now joined with other SCI Groups in the Agriculture, Horticulture and Food sectors to form an Agri-Food Hub.


The Horticulture Group has close ties with the following organisations:

Crop Protection Monthly is offered to all members of the Agrisciences and Horticulture Groups at the special price of £175 + VAT per year, a 20% discount. Subscribers will also receive a copy of CropScene, once every three months. More


If you are looking for a way to become more involved with SCI, you might want to consider becoming one of our active volunteers.

SCI volunteers work at the heart of SCI. As a volunteer, you will create and strengthen your skills, interact with people from different backgrounds, gather new and interesting experiences, and build your confidence and credibility.
