The discipline of garden plants and ornamental horticulture originated from the Garden Plant Teaching and Research Section of the Landscape Department of Zhejiang Forestry College established in 1985.Today, there are 17 members of the discipline, including 4 professors, 7 associate professors, and 3 lecturers; there are 2 Zhejiang "New Century 151 Talents" and 2 Zhejiang middle-aged and young academic leaders, forming a structureReasonable, academically active, truth-seeking and dedicated faculty.Discipline: Zhejiang Province "Flower Industry Innovation Team", "Zhejiang Province Flower New Variety Breeding Cooperation Group", "Zhejiang Landscape Postgraduate Education Innovation Demonstration Base", "Ornamental Botany" Provincial Teaching Team, "Floriculture" Provincial Excellent CourseAnd other teaching and scientific research platforms, the "Garden Plant Germplasm Innovation and Utilization" laboratory has been constructed to provide support and guarantee for related personnel training, scientific research and social services.
1. Scientific research
The discipline is mainly devoted to the research in the fields of garden plant resource system classification and development and utilization, germplasm innovation and new variety breeding, physiological ecology and cultivation management, plant landscape and benefit evaluation, and gradually focus on resources and classification, reproduction basis and reproduction ecology,The molecular mechanism of flowering of woody plants and the evaluation of plant landscape benefits have formed obvious characteristics and advantages.During the Twelfth Five-Year Plan period, the discipline has undertaken more than 50 provincial and ministerial-level projects, including the National Natural Science Foundation of China, Zhejiang Provincial Major Science and Technology Project, and Zhejiang Natural Science Foundation, with scientific research funding of more than 12 million yuan; won 4 provincial-level awards; Published 129 papers and 10 monographs.
2. Cultivation of talents
Disciplines support the daily teaching and talent training of "Landscape Plants and Ornamental Horticulture", "Landscape Architecture" masters and undergraduates "Landscaping" (national characteristic majors and Zhejiang Province advantage majors), "Landscape Architecture" and "Garden Art Design".More than 1,500 undergraduate graduates and more than 300 master’s degree graduates have been transported to the society.

3. Social services
