A wide variety of machines are used at the nursery, from well-known devices to specialised machines like the rootball lifter or ball cutting machine. We also further develop many of our machines to meet our specific needs. In addition to technical interest and manual dexterity, this also requires a wealth of ideas and abstract thinking skills.

Together with the University of Applied Sciences Weihenstephan-Triesdorf, we offer the option of a dual horticultural studies programme.
