We LOVE working at the HERITAGE NURSERY and most of us have been here for MANY YEARS.
As we are all aware, Canberra really does have a VERY unique climate and is not always the easiest place to maintain a healthy and successful garden. Many of our customers are new and aspiring Gardeners and need a guiding hand to help them on their way to achieving a 'green thumb'. Knowledge of different micro climates in our district, a wide variety of soil types and the challenge of starting a Garden in one of the MANY brand new suburbs, are some of the regular queries we are here to assist with.
In August 2017 we welcomed John Cassidy as the NEW owner of the Heritage Nursery. John is full of GREAT ideas and is taking the Nursery forward with amazing Energy. With over 15 years experience in Garden centres (namely Willow Park in Pialligo) and Retail, John is bringing the Nursery up to the next level, which is really just the next step in its evolution as a Premier Garden centre.
