|My nursery garden back in the day|
|Real nursery garden|
A nursery garden is just an out of the way plot of land--usually beside a greenhouse--where you plant and keep trees, shrubs and/or perennials which are not quite ready or big enough to enter the formal gardens or flower beds. It is in essence your very own garden center. You start off with very inexpensive and usually tiny plants, trees, shrubs or perhaps plants you grow from seed. They then are sheltered in this garden and allowed to grow either in their own pots or right in the ground.

My nursery garden, alas, is a mess at the moment. There are more weeds, wild raspberry plants, native viburnum and quaking Aspen saplings in it than "real" plants. It had been a pretty sight once upon a time, though. I planted it more like a mixed perennial bed, so of course it was lovely!
