The story continues …….
Within a few years Philip had established Renaissance herbs in the Sydney retail market and started receiving enquiries from other states. In 1993 Parker’s Place became a licenced grower to supply the Queensland retail market, followed quickly by Victoria (Romantic Nursery, South Australia (Briggs Nursery), Western Australia (Swan Valley Nursery) Tasmania (Allans Nursery), New Zealand (Earthworks). This formed a National Growing Group which has become the largest wholesale grower of potted herbs and perennials in Australia. Philip has since sold his nursery to Scotts Nursery who supplies NSW & ACT.
The labels have morphed through many phases, and now have a modern simple look that still contains the valuable growing tips and food partner suggestions and uses.
The Renaissance group meets twice yearly to review the market, add new plants and update information.
