Garden and nursery labourers work alongside gardeners and landscape designers to plant, propagate and cultivate plants in gardens and horticultural nurseries. They fertilise, water and prune flowering plants, shrubs and trees and mow lawns.
Garden and nursery labourers undertake their work in public and private gardens, parks and horticultural nurseries.
Suitable for people with a preference for working on the land or with nature, and an interest in plant species and their care.
Formal qualifications are not required, however a certificate course in horticulture, nursery production or gardening can be helpful.
