How To Find Effective Horticultural Sales Staff

Plant Nurseries often find it difficult to find competent sales staff.

To do this type of job well, you need two basic skills:

1st To know Plants -If you can identify hundreds of plants, you will impress a boss and greatly increase your chance of employment; and more importantly, the likelihood of long term success in this type of job. If you can identify plants and know how to care for them properly, you will be able to advise customers better; and help maintain sales stock in far more attractive condition.

2nd To be able to Sell -It takes personality, communication skill, and an understanding of selling to be able to effectively sell plants and associated garden products. A good sales person is extremely valuable to any nursery manager.

ACS has developed a Distance Education Course that aims to develop precisely these skills!
