Tips for Hiring Nurserymen
The following are some tips for hiring nurserymen:
Tip #1: Inspect the Plants Always inspect the gardens of nurserymen before allowing them onto your lawn. Take a look at the stems, leaves, and roots of the plants. If everything looks healthy, then your prospect nurseryman is off to a good start.
Tip #2: Inspect the Nurseryman Generally speaking, nurserymen do not require any specific education. Some nurserymen will have taken horticulture courses or similar classes. Sometimes these individuals just grew up taking care of bushes and flowers. Find out how long the nurseryman has been in business. View examples of that person’s work, and this excludes the nursery you have already taken a look at. After all, you want to see what the trees and flowers will look like on a real lawn.
Tip #3: Discuss the Details Make sure your nurseryman knows what you expect. Be sure to outline the kinds of plants you want, the irrigation system or schedule you desire, and other important details. Do not be surprised if the nurseryman offers suggestions that will enhance your garden or improve its care.
Tip #4: Get It in Writing Ongoing work performed by a nurseryman will call for a formal contract, even if the work only happens once or twice a month. This document should outline all of the details you discussed prior to hiring this professional. Remember that even occasional services, like a springtime fertilizer treatment or pesticide spray, should be documented. Without the proper receipts you lack proof that a particular professional actually performed the lawn care service.
Nursery men can be found at organizations that sell seeds, trees, bushes, soil, and mulch. They are available to come to your home or office and plant seeds or plants. The growers will have tips on soil care and what signs to look for with dormancy of a seed. Nurseries will generally have seasonal plants available. If it's time to plant summer plants you will need to wait for another season to find fall and winter flowers. Nursery men can be found at retailers and wholesalers in your area by looking online or in a phone book. You can visit several nurseries to get a look at how well they take care of their plants to decide where you will want to buy them from. You can find reviews to see what other people have thought about a nursery's starter plugs and if they worked as well as they had hoped. Nurserymen will be available at organizations that promote plants and flowers. Retailers and wholesalers will hire nurserymen to attend to the plants they want to sell and help customers with questions they may have about their yard. Therefore, visit stores and talk with some workers to see who knows more about taking care of plants. Suppliers will offer different prices depending on the plant and how mature it is. Visit several different retailers to see where the best deal is. Growers will be competitive and will want to have the healthiest plants in order to entice customers to buy from them, so shop around and see who has the best plants for the best prices.
