Nursery Owners and Managers

Owners and managers are responsible for the operation of nurseries, garden centers, and greenhouses. Many nurseries grow their own stock, but at times owners and managers must order more exotic plants from other vendors. Owners and managers work with a budget that includes the cost of growing seedlings in their greenhouses, as well as purchasing plants from other vendors. They may use past sales records, information on new trends in gardening, and marketing research to determine the types and quantities of plants grown and sold at the store.
