Many women and men deal in retail fertilizer products for a living. If you work in this business, it is likely that you are employed at a garden center, nursery, or home improvement shop of some kind. Many of these business and company locations offer a wide array of natural and plant organic fertilizers. These are added to soil and lawns in order to promote the growth and health of flowers, grass, trees, perennial flowers, and vegetables. When you work in this business, you will often have to handle compost materials and manure fertilizers with nitrogen and phosphorus gasses, as well as liquid products that assist yards and gardens.
It is important to understand how natural plant and yard fertilizers work. This is why you may need some special training in order to work successfully in this industry. Typically, you can receive this training at the company or store you work at. Some topics you might learn more about are cheap lawn seeding, ammonia in fertilizers, winterizing lawns, timed organic fertilizers for spring, and all natural garden compost materials. The prices of these plant, grass, and tree fertilizers vary, and some are specifically for farming vegetables. You will need to know your way around agriculture and soil products, so that you can answer any common questions that residential homeowners or farmers may have.
When working in this retail business, you will typically have to deal with a number of consumers. You may also have to work with store or shop managers, nursery owners, and wholesale fertilizer distributors at times.
