What should I do to study plants in college if it isn't a main career goal/path?

I love gardening and plants and love learning about them. I took a small horticulture class through 4-H last year, which I really enjoyed. But, I don't plan on doing stuff with plants as a full-time career, I'd like to do it more as a hobby. So, I was wondering what I should do for high school and college. I'm planing on majoring in Equine Studies or some other horse class and becoming a horse trainer and riding instructor. Would it be smart to minor in a plant class? What would be a good plant-related minor? Or would it be possible to just take a few classes about plants, not an entire minor, but still taking them? Or should I just not take any classes like that and learn more from experience? My high school also has special classes that you can take in 11th and 12th grade. The two that I'm interested in are Agriculture and Horticulture. I was thinking agriculture might be better for my horse-related future, but horticulture might be a fun and interesting class to take for gardening (and getting lots of free plants). Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Do plants have soul?

I have been wondering this because I have heard that plants get hurt and they make their own food and all. I don't know if that is good question or not...but sometimes you gotta think out of box...

What college in Iowa has good horticulture programs?

I want to open my own plant nursery business, so I want to take horticulture and a business class. I am planning on attending Kirkwood for Landscape horticulture studies because it has more of what I want to study than their other agriculture classes that include farm equipment and other farm things (which I don't need to learn about for what I want to do). I know that Kirkwood and Iowa State have good horticulture programs, but I was wondering if any other colleges offer any horticulture programs. #horticulture #plants #business #college #programs

Do I need to get a business degree to open/start my own business?

I am going to start my own plant nursery business after I graduate from college. I want my business to be centered around helping people and enjoying my job, not just about the money. I hear a lot of people say that when you go for a business degree, they teach very adamantly about how to make a lot of money, so would it be better to take online classes for business instead of an actual college class? #nursery #plants #horticulture #business #entrepreneurship

Should I choose a career in environmental protection?

I know it is up to me but I was originally thinking biology. I think I would actually enjoy environmental protection better though. #environmental-science #life-sciences #outdoors #plants
