This is a fast paced environment during the busy season of spring and fall. Some experience with plants is a must. Strong work ethic, punctual nature, patience, team participation and willingness to learn and take on new tasks are required. Occasionally the office manager may help with customers, tag plants, or water but that would not be their main role. The nursery has a wide range of duties and sometimes everyone pitches in.
