Sheridan Nurseries

In 1913, Howard Dunington-Grubb and his wife, Lorrie, bought a small plot of land near Sheridan, Ontario, for the cultivation of ornamental plants. Local farmers thought they were crazy. But Howard and Lorrie, landscape architects recently arrived from England, were visionaries who dreamed of creating magnificent gardens in the colonial wasteland. Realizing that Canada had no nurseries that produced the plants they needed, they started one of their own. To manage it they hired Herman Stensson, an expert nurseryman whose references included one from the crown prince of Denmark.The chronicles of the Dunington-Grubbs and the Stensson family form the basis for the incredible history of Sheridan Nurseries. The story is enhanced by the diverse backgrounds and experiences of the many people who helped turn a dream into success. This Canadian saga reaches from the monuments of Toronto's University Avenue and Niagara's Oakes Garden Theatre to hundreds of parks and estates, and perhaps even your own backyard.
