Dear Mr. Patz:

I have been a horticulturist for the past ten years. I am trained and experienced, with a specialty in planting and growing various species of trees, flowers, shrubs, and outdoor plants. I am writing this cover letter today to apply for the position you listed on JobBankUSA.com.

If we could meet in person, I will show you photos of some of the work I've done and the team of horticulturists I've trained during my time at East Coast Nursery in New Jersey.

Are you free to get together any morning next week? Please call me at 456-777-8989 to let me know. I'll meet your schedule. Thank you for reviewing my cover letter and resume prior to our meeting.
