Our Story

Started an adventure of a lifetime in 1985

My name is David Button and together with my wife Judy, this is our story.

Our adventure began in 1985 when I built a little greenhouse in the backyard to propagate struck cuttings for two wholesale nurseries to grow out into saleable plants. We were newly married and had a mortgage to pay, so we both worked full-time jobs and did cuttings at night. I was a horticultural sales rep at Fertool Distributors and Judy was a propagator at Little Acre Nursery, one of the early perennial nurseries of the time.

It was very exciting to have an extra income out of doing what we loved. It wasn't long before we didn't have enough time to do all the work ourselves and we had to employ our first staff.
