Some people work for wholesale nursery locations that provide plants and trees to retail garden stores and nurseries. This can be a very exciting line of work for individuals who appreciate garden seeds, tropical flowers, perennials, and vegetable planting. Since many residential homeowners seek out dogwood trees, bamboo plants, pretty shrubs, and rose bushes all the time for home planting, this is a very big business these days. When you work for a wholesale nursery, you will likely handle all kinds of indoor and outdoor plants and trees daily. You will likely take orders from numerous retail garden centers and home improvement stores regularly. After all, these retail locations will need to purchase nursery supplies in bulk from you.
It is often important to have a certain level of on-the-job training when you work in this business. This way you can acquire a good knowledge of shrubs, hydrangea plants that climb, and perennial flowers that survive the summer, fall, and winter. While you may have to handle magnolia bushes and cherry trees for one purchase, you may have to deal with garden seeds and dogwood trees for another order. Since there are nurseries and garden centers all over the nation, this line of work can get quite busy at times. Therefore you can expect to handle a lot of wild orchids, fast growing rose bushes, cactus plants, and other supplies to keep house properties green.
In this field, you will likely deal with the managers and owners of nursery stores and garden centers regularly.
