Nursery and Greenhouse Information
March 31st, 2017

Ready to care for plants? Working at a nursery or a greenhouse is a great place to learn and practice your gardening skills. Most businesses will provide on the job training, but it certainly helps to know a little bit about plants. Working in a greenhouse or nursery setting will require you to work outside and often in hot or rainy conditions. You will be performing manual labor, planting, harvesting and completing an inventory on a regular basis. Depending on the business, you may also have some interactions with customers, assisting them with purchases and educating them about how to care for their plants.

An interview at a plant nursery will focus on your overall knowledge and expertise in a variety of species of plants. They will also want to know about your experience using tools, machinery and how well you work with others on a team. By refreshing yourself on some of the basic terminologies and practicing with these interview questions, you can walk into your interview with more confidence in the qualities and skills you have to offer. Good luck!
