Greenhouse jobs can be rewarding careers for people with a deep interest in horticulture.
The work is dirty and can be physically exhausting, but greenhouse workers enjoy a deep sense of satisfaction in cultivating healthy plants and flowers. Very few greenhouse positions require a college degree, but a 2-year certificate in horticulture can lead to a managerial position or specialized role at a nursery. If you want to work in a greenhouse, follow the guidelines

Decide whether a greenhouse job suits your personal skill set. Most jobs in nurseries and greenhouses require both physical strength and a general understanding of all aspects of horticulture. Some of the basic requirements of working in a greenhouse include:

Physical strength: Most of the work greenhouse workers do requires only moderate physical exertion. Typically, duties include pruning plants, transplanting seedlings and cultivating flowers. But greenhouse workers often have to carry heavy bags of soil and other material throughout the day. They also may be required to unload flower pallets.

• Botanical knowledge: Most greenhouse workers can expect to get on-the-job training, but a basic understanding of plant care is beneficial. This work includes proper fertilization and watering of plants,
and controlling pests.

• Customer service skills: Greenhouse workers can expect to interact with customers, answering plant-care questions and performing basic sales functions.source - WikiHow
