The idea of the Weeping Grevillea Nursery came about after Wayne had produced several specimens for the home garden and was encouraged by the positive results and feedback from visitors. Soon it was another case of a hobby gone mad. And the rest is history. Both Wayne and Vikki have professional careers. Vikki as a Maternal and Child Health Nurse in local government and Wayne has his own consulting company, Wayton Consulting which specialises in Human Resources Management, particularly in industrial relations and aspects of the Fair Work Act which impact employers
Wayne does all the propagation in the nursery including the 4 years of rootstock preparation before grafting can occur. He has completed studies at Burnley, adding some theory to his practical outlook.
Vikki is responsible for the sales side of the business. She attends community markets Both Vikki and Wayne can be found at the nursery each Saturday to attend to sales and enquiries from the public.
