The Graduate Horticulture Program at The University of Maine is a multi-dimensional program that offers graduate students the opportunity to explore the many aspects of horticulture through course work, teaching, extension, and original research. Opportunities exist in a broad range of horticultural commodities such as: ornamental plant selection and evaluation, low-temperature tolerance, landscape plant production, blueberry physiology and hardiness, turfgrass management, potato tuberization and breeding, pomology, tissue culture, and weed management. Students are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the horticulture program and develop a well rounded curriculum of study.
