The Department of Horticulture was originally concerned with landscaping, garden management and marketing, and fruit production and marketing. Today, it focuses on fruit and vegetable production; landscape design and installation; and golf-course design and management.
The Department of Horticulture was formed in 1946 as the result of the split of the Department of Horticulture and Forestry.
