If you like working with plants then the nursery sector has many exciting opportunities for you. The nursery sector can be found in cities and rural areas across Australia. There is hardly a living plant grown for the horticultural industry that does not start life in a nursery of some kind.
Wholesale nurseries propagate and supply plants to supermarkets, retail nurseries, garden centres and landscapers. They are often large and located on the outskirts of major cities.
Retail nurseries sell to the general public. They employ workers with a good knowledge of plants and gardening products and who can communicate well with customers. As many retail nurseries are open 7 days a week, they often employ casual and part-time workers.
There are many opportunities in then nursery sector for nursery, plant and sales assistants, nursery hands and horticulturalists.
