The nursery is a business dedicated to the sale of plants and flowers. The nursery, in fact, can be entirely dedicated to floriculture or, as is often the case, organized by zones. As a rule, the nursery has fruit plants, houseplants, seedlings and flowers. We will also not find cut flowers usually produced by florists and flower shops. On the other hand, the presence of a section dedicated to fake flowers and fake plants is becoming widespread. Peonies, roses, cyclamen, hydrangeas and violets: all kinds of flowers found in nature have been reproduced in PVC and synthetic fibers and are now also available in specialist nurseries. In addition, the nursery represents a valid alternative for florists, at least for the purchase of plants.
The nursery and its shelves: the alternative to the florist
The nursery, originally designed as a warehouse for the sale of fruits and seedlings, has become a real plant shop. The nursery has it all: indoor and flowering plants. The fact that nurseries have specialized in the conditioning of plants means that today they represent a valid alternative to florists. It is not necessary to go to the florist for an invitation to dinner or a birthday, the nursery will satisfy our needs. One can choose to buy a plant like a bonsai, a dwarf mandarin, an orchid or a beautiful begonia. We can choose any type of plant and not the limited selection made by the florist. Add to that the consideration of incurred expenses:
The crèche: an oasis in the city
To breathe nature a little, we all have the habit of waiting for the weekend to take refuge in the park or take a trip outside the city to get some fresh air. If this possibility is denied us, perhaps because it is expensive, our desire for nature can also be satisfied by a visit to the nursery. The nursery is certainly not a forest or a field, but with a little imagination and the right spirit, one can be satisfied with a walk among flowers and plants. Normally the nursery is organized in pavilions or greenhouses and access to each is free and open. At the entrance to the nursery it is possible to have trolleys or hand baskets in which to put the plants that we prefer. In the choice you can let yourself be guided by your instinct, by sight or smell!
The crèche as an opportunity to follow courses and events
We have already emphasized the possibility that the nursery nearest to us will become an oasis for us in which to take refuge, perhaps to relax while walking among the plants and flowers. Courses and lessons open to all are organized in the pavilions or in the kindergarten rooms. Women are the privileged referents, but nothing prevents men from taking part if they are interested. The courses we can take, of course, are dedicated to developing and unleashing creativity, naturally with plants and flowers. The most popular are those of florists and wedding planners. Many agencies agree with the nurserymen on the possibility of using the spaces and the material of the nursery during their courses, ensuring the nursery a return to the image.
