Perth Nursery & Beyond, The (Sep)

Perth Nursery & Beyond, The


The rich alluvial deposits from the River Tay, combined with its sheltered location, make Perth a place that enjoys rich growing conditions. In the area now covered by Riverside Park, there was a nationally important nursery established in the eighteenth century by James Dickson. This is believed to have formed the initial basis for commercial rose breeding as we know it today. The Perth Nursery & Beyond tells the fascinating and important story of the Riverside Nursery.
