Floriculture covers all the aspects related to the production and use of flowers and ornamental plants, flower seeds, bulbs etc. Apart from the utilities of ornamental plants in outdoor gardening and interior decoration as house plants, cut flowers and potted plants constitute important segments of international trade. Planting materials and dried products are also important items in the international market. The scenario of floriculture is changing very fast due to steadily widening export opportunities. The demand for flowers and ornamental plants in the domestic market is growing at a fast pace too and a large number of people earn their livelihood by either producing or marketing flowers and ornamental plants in this country.
