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 and his creative partner Shaen are full of GREAT ideas and are taking the Nursery forward with amazing Innovation & Energy. With both of them having over 15 years experience in Garden centres (namely Willow Park in Pialligo) and Retail, they are bringing the Nursery up to the next level, the next step in The Heritage Nurseries evolution as a Premier Garden Centre.
Scott.. our awesome and Super switched on Manager.. he's in HIGH demand by his 'adoring fans'... as he is often considered our Garden Guru, but is always happy for a chat and top advice !
Len, and Erin are usually out in the Native Section, with a wealth of knowledge in growing Natives in our district. They have years of experience between them regarding many of the Rare and Unusual plants we source from around Australia, and will make sure you understand all about drainage and siting for many of our special 'treasures'
