A Nurseryperson propagates and cultivates plants for sale to the public or to a wholesale market. You’ll liaise with customers and tend to plants available for sale. You’ll make sure plants are thriving and keep them watered and fertilised. You might provide advice to customers on plant selection and process sales transactions. A Nurseryperson might have to process large orders and arrange transport of stock.
Being a Nurseryperson requires a good knowledge of plant species and their requirements. It can involve manual labour so you’ll need to be capable of some physical work. You’ll spend a lot of time outdoors so you’ll need to be ready to work in a range of weather conditions. A Nurseryperson should have good customer service skills and be able to communicate with team members, wholesale buyers and in store customers.
