OUR ADMINISTRATORS

VAN DER LAY, JOHN

NURSERY MANAGER & OWNER

John has 35 years of experience in the nursery industry, but he has been an avid gardener and plant collector since he was a child. Days spent in the garden with his mother and grandparents, visits to Allan Seale’s local nursery, and tending the garden for his Beecroft, Sydney neighbors all contributed to his horticultural interest.

 

John was offered a full-time Horticulture teaching position at Ryde TAFE after completing a Science degree at university and later topping his Horticulture classes.

 

John’s first wholesale nursery in Sydney realized his dream of growing beautiful flowering ornamental plants. In the early 1980s, a move to the Mid North Coast of NSW led to expansion into the Queensland market.

John specializes in ornamental plants, and Vanderley Nursery has amassed an impressive collection of spectacular lines under his watchful eye. Never afraid to try new methods or experiment with new releases, his reputation for producing Wow Factor plants has grown, and he happily works under the motto….So Much Color.

GOULDING, CAROL

CAFE MANAGER & OWNER

Carol developed a love of the land and horticulture while growing up in the Sunraysia region of Victoria. Her training in sales, marketing, fashion floral art, and color consultancy have all come together to make her sales role an important part of the Nursery’s growth.

 

Attending Expos and Trade Days between Sydney and Brisbane allows for face-to-face contact with clients as well as the creation of beautiful displays of Vanderley Nursery Color.

 

Carol, who has a lifelong passion for food and hospitality, can be found on the other side of the pass in the Cafe when time permits. Her specialty is cafe management and event coordination.

 

Carol finds aspects of her job that she finds very rewarding, such as developing good working relationships with the Nursery and Cafe clients and providing friendly advice and good service.
