There are things experience will not teach you. I am formally train in business management, landscape design, horticulture and spool much more. Also very rare with a top rated education that puts my resume over other with two to three times the experience. I highly encourage my men to pursue certifications, education, and etc. To discourage is stupid in opinion.
You have a degree in hort? Your a business owner are you not?
I've never seen a hort degree or something similar work out for a worker in a company, they either become designers/salesmen (something company owners want to pay for even less than a good foreman) or they become company owners (or at least try to).
