David Glenn, a genius of a plantsperson who gardens and runs Lambley Nursery on Central Victoria’s hot windswept plains.”

Jane Canaway, The Weekly Review, March 16, 2016

“Through his friendship with nurserymen around the world, Glenn sources botanical treasures and trials them in his severe climate before their release at the 4ha garden”
Holly Kerr-Forsyth, The Australian, March 2016

Holly Kerr-Forsyth, The Australian, March 2016

"Just wanted to congratulate you on making these superb lettuce seeds available to the home gardener!! The 'Green Butterhead' Lettuce variety has been superb and we have picked from one planting of three plants for many weeks.  Red Butterhead – have picked leaves rather than the whole plant and like the green butterhead have produced for weeks. A very attractive and tasty addition to salads. Red Crisp and Green Crisp have also been magnificent"

Ken Fogden

"In the small town of Ascot, Australia, the harsh climate inhibits many gardeners, but at Lambley Nursery and Gardens, plantsman David Glenn has worked with the weather to create a flourishing garden."
