Horticulture is the cultivation of fruits, flowers, and vegetables. This is used as a therapeutic approach. Horticultural activities may be a new strategy for the elderly to promote mental, social and cognitive functioning. Over the past few decades, horticulture has been used as a suitable treatment for elderly in long-term care centers while gardening is still not used as a treatment for the elderly in Turkey. The aim of the study was to review the benefits or the positive effects of horticultural therapy on elderly in nursing homes. The study also provides some helpful design solutions to promote the creation of such spaces in nursing homes especially in Turkey. Horticulture requests of elderly individuals in nursing homes need to be met in a way allowing easy access of individuals in nursing homes. The importance of the horticulture in this organization must be understood and adopted.
