The Paterno Nurseries was founded in 1970 by the owner Ben Paterno. The majority of the products they sell here are grown on the 87 acres belonging to Paterno Nurseries. They provide wholesale service to independent garden centres, fruit markets, seasonal businesses, landscapers, re-wholesalers, cities and municipalities. The garden centre is stocked with plants grown on location, and annuals (flowers and vegetables) sourced from local growers. The Paterno Nurseries is a family run business, with both Ben and his son Michael at the helm.
