Some women and men work in garden centers and nursery shops, and deal with plant rentals. This is a major business in this day and age, and it can be a very exciting field to get involved with. It is important to know a lot about various flower, plant, tree and shrub species. Many people shop around for discount vegetation and foliage that can be rented for office spaces, weddings, stage props, and outdoor events. It is your job to assist these individuals with pinpointing the right tropical flowers, artificial silk plants, and small trees they need for interior décor purposes.
Although you do not need a specific degree to work in the flower or plant business, a degree in botany would certainly be useful. You will work with a large variety of garden shrubs, tropical flowers, unique plants, and live trees. While some clients will need your assistance with fake vegetation and flower décor for an office building or indoor party, others will need you to help them with live shrubs for outdoor use. Keep in mind that many people look into leasing new or fresh plants and vegetation for holiday events at their homes, wedding events, and fun parties. You must inform them of any water or sunlight the flowers or plants require.
In this line of work, you will have to deal with a variety of clients. This means major company or office buildings, wedding planners, holiday party organizers, and prop professionals.
