Nursery Owners and Managers
A high school diploma is important in order to understand the basics of business ownership and management, and further study of horticulture in a community college will give you an advantage in a tight market, though there are no specific educational or experiential requirements for this position. Course work in business administration is helpful, as is previous experience in the retail trade. Hard work, constant analysis and evaluation, and sufficient capital are important elements of a successful business venture.
