A nursery is a place where plants are kept and propagated until they can be replanted, sold or used for their intended purpose.
There are three types of nursery - the retail nursery, wholesale nursery and private nursery. Retail nurseries mainly sell plants to the general public while wholesale nurseries sell plants to commercial landscape gardeners, bulk buyers and other nurseries. Private nurseries may have a small specialised client base, or they may be for the owner's personal enjoyment.
A nursery can specialise in propagating different types of plants or focus on a particular plant species, and a nursery may also specialise in different areas of propagating plants. Annuals, woody plants, herbs, decorative plants, perennials, vegetables and landscaping plants are some example of plants that can be grown in a nursery.
