The plant nursery tag is used to map these areas where plant nurseries exist. A plant nursery grows live plants for sale, much like a farm grows crops for food. Unlike a farm, a plant nursery generally sells the whole living plant, rather than produce.
Plants being grown can include flowers and trees with Christmas tree farm being special case of plant nursery.
To describe more details of the plant nursery the following additional tags can be used:
|landuse=plant_nursery||Defines that the land is being used as a plant nursery.||The purpose of applying this tag must be for land that is used to produce trees, any other plantations that produce food must use landuse=orchard.|

|operator=*||The name of the farmer/company which owns the plant nursery.|
|plant=*||The generic type of plant that is grown.||Possible values: tree, herb, bush, grass, vine, fern, moss, green-algae|

- Trees that are grown for food production, use landuse=orchard instead.
- Greenhouses. This tag landuse=plant_nursery is strictly meant for growing plants in open land, not inside a greenhouse, for these purposes landuse=greenhouse_horticulture is used.
- Vineyards, where grapes are grown for a variety of purposes, including the production of wine: landuse=vineyard.
