Nursery Worker

About Maryflower

Maryflower is a boutique nursery situated in Grenada Village, Wellington owned and operated by Annemarie van der Slot – Verhoeven. We grow a variety of plants, from natives to cottage plants. The fact that they are grown in Wellington makes them well adapted to the city’s windy climate.

Plant lovers can enjoy Maryflower’s show garden where you can see what the plants look like once they have matured. Our success comes from the ability to interact with the customer, being friendly and approachable, while simultaneously providing expert gardening advice. 

Maryflower nursery is growing and we are on the hunt to expand our team.

Who are you? 

Are you an enthusiastic gardener, having green fingers and keen to help Maryflower to grow to the next step, then we are looking for you. To be successful in this role, you need to be friendly, enthusiastic and willing to help customers independently with their gardening needs. A background in horticultural would be an advantage but is not essential. Eagerness to learn and reliability are your most important skills!
