David’s Answer

The average pay for a Horticulturist is $68,927 a year and $33 an hour in the United States. The average salary range for a Horticulturist is between $49,365 and $85,056. On average, a Bachelor's Degree is the highest level of education for a Horticulturist. It's a hard profession. You have to have a lot of training. I always recommend lots of internships, especially at other public gardens, to really find the way in that you're really comfortable with. Some horticulture is very focused on science of plant conservation. Good luck!!
