Will I be able to make a living off a horticulture degree?
I'm 18 and ready to apply for college. It might disappoint my parents (who want to see become an accountant and make 6 figures), but I'm highly thinking about going to a local college for a horticulture degree. I know already know big bucks aren't involved and I'm not worried about that at all, as gardening is my favorite hobby and I wouldn't enjoy any other career field as much. It would definitely be my ideal career, with carpentry behind that, which I don't think is too different in salary.
Now my concern though is having a hard time finding employment, and not making enough income to live comfortably. I would like to do something in the more hands on field, like something to do with nursery work, groundskeeping, landscape design, etc. There's not much out there about horticulture jobs and employment rates.
So my overall question is, if I get a 4 year degree in horticulture, will I be able to find work and if I do will I have at least a somewhat decent income?
