Role: Nursery Person

Greg has been a part of the Gills Nursery group for 32 years. He obtained his horticulture qualifications at Burnley and loves working outside. 

His favourite plant is a Cercis canadensis 'Forest Pansy' because according to Greg, “it has it all!, flowers, foliage, autumn colour and nice wood”.

When he’s not helping customers with all their needs in the Nursery you can find him at the footy supporting the Mighty Saints! 


Role: Nursery Person

Leonie obtained her horticulture qualifications at Holmesglen and has over 20 years of Industry experience. She has been with the Gills Nursery group for 13 years, starting at the Brighton store.

Leonie loves plants and working outdoors, and while she says it's too hard to have a favourite she is partial to Australian native gardens.


Role: Garden Design

Annalise holds a Certificate IV in Landscape and Design from Burnley, and a Certificate in Garden Design from RMIT. She has 11 years experience in Garden Design and has been with the Gills Group for 6 years.
