    The Shreckhise family’s roots in the nursery industry date back to the late 1800’s, when Noah Shreckhise (pictured below) founded Augusta Nurseries.  The nursery was located on the family farm in Augusta CountyVirginia near the community of Mt. Sidney.  In 1935, three of his nephews, George, Charles and John Shreckhise, formed a partnership called Shreckhise Brothers.  They undertook numerous business ventures including nursery and landscaping.  Plants were grown on the same farm as Uncle Noah had used.  Landscaping was done in Augusta and Rockingham counties with an occasional job as far away as WashingtonDC.

    In 1961, the nursery was moved to its current location in Rockingham County.  As production increased, the nursery began to wholesale material to local garden centers and landscape contractors, and wholesaling became a major part of the business by the early 1970’s.  

    In 1977, the next generation, including Danny and Jerry Shreckhise, bought the business.  Shortly thereafter, landscaping was dropped and nursery production became the primary focus.  The first basket grown trees were started in 1980.  At present, 90% of our total production is in containers.  We are now entering a fourth generation in the industry.
