Horticulture II is an agriculture course designed
to expand students’ knowledge in specific principlesand processes related to horticulture. Horticulture II is designed for students in grades 9-12 in the North Carolina public secondary schools.
Horticulture II is designed to provide students an in-depth study of horticulture including: floriculture and nursery/landscape plant identification, greenhouse plant production, landscape design and maintenance, floral design, nursery production, lawn establishment and maintenance, and pest management.
Horticulture II also includes leadership development and employability skills. This guide has been developed to assist teachers in offering a focused, well-planned, high quality program of study for studying Horticulture II students.
Our Horticulture II program at Lake Norman utilizes our school greenhouse and garden space to produce bedding plants, vegetable plants, ferns and various landscape plants to be sold in the spring.
