Clive and Di Larkman own and operate a large wholesale production nursery in the picturesque Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia. The nursery has been operating since 1984, and grows high quality tubestock plants for nurseries and landscapers around Australia.
The range includes perennials, groundcovers, shrubs and trees. Herbs and other edibles are marketed through the Renaissance Herbs brand – you may have come across their distinctive mustard-coloured pots in garden centres.
Clive and Di regularly introduce new and exciting varieties from national and international professional plant breeders, many of which have gone on to become gardener favourites. Their frequent global travels give them access to rare and hard-to-find varieties.
Clive is a botanist who has had a varied career with plants including running a restaurant in the UK and being a presenter on the popular lifestyle show, Garden Gurus. For many years, Clive was a regular guest presenter on The Big Backyard gardening show on 3AW, Melbourne’s leading radio station.
Clive also runs a lavender consultancy and is a member of various horticultural boards, including being past President of International Plant Propagators Society Australian Region and incoming International President (2019).
