Ornamental Horticulture

University of Maine Cooperative Extension provides practical, how-to solutions based on university research. Whether you attend our workshops, use our publications, read something in the newspaper, or hear it on the radio, UMaine Extension information is where you are.

Our gardening and horticulture experts conduct field research and provide information and consultation for people involved in

  • commercial horticulture (nurseries, landscape companies, greenhouses, florists, and garden centers)
  • public horticulture (botanic gardens, arboreta, public parks, and community horticulture projects)
  • home gardening
