I want to work my way up to doing plant taxonomy masters in currently doing my hnc in horticulture and want to progress to bsc though is it worth doing a masters in that ? As I've heard of a lot of people saying it's a waste of time is that because it was finance and the like ? There is a shortage of taxonomists though is it worth it ?

I was in a similar position - really like taxonomy, although my preference is insects! I decided ultimately not to pursue a MSc strictly in taxonomy because the field seems rather small and job offers few and far between. What you could do is look at Plant Biotechnology masters, masters programmes containing plant ecology modules and the like which would enable you to still work on taxonomy but gain other related knowledge.
