A nursery is a place where plants are propagated, usually for sale as a business, though some gardeners and farmers keep private nurseries. Typical plants grown in a nursery would include fruit trees or bushes, home landscape shrubbery and trees, and started plants for gardeners. Plants may be propagated by seeds, but often desirable cultivars are propagated as clones by budding, grafting, layering, or other nursery techniques.
