Flowers/Nursery/ Greenhouse

All of our nurseries are family run companies that provide an excellent training experience.

Nurseries are generally a couple of hectares in size and are all different in style.  They might be an Igloo type heated plastic greenhouse or maybe standard greenhouses fitted with state of the art climate control systems that monitor and control the conditions ensuring healthy crops.  Some growers also have outside seasonal production.

Nurseries provide a variety of spectacular flowers such as Carnations, Alstroemerias, Lilies, Peonies Roses and Freesias, and Gerberas and some specialise in potted colour and vegetable seedling production.

Equipment found can be pot houses, automatic transplanter, bunching and processing machine, various planting machines, packing shed, forklifts, trucks, 2wd and 4wd motorbikes.

Duties and responsibility depend on what you desire.  These will differ because of seasons and experience but are mainly plotting, planting, fertilising, picking, crop care, packing and maintenance.  Manual labour is needed for loading and dispatch.
