A bit about Greg Carrick
Greg began as the First Apprentice at Gardenworld Nursery (Dingley Nurseries) in 1979. As a growing business, it soon had a couple more apprentices as the sales expanded. He was fortunate to work for an owner who was quite progressive heading to Europe and America to look at trends in retailing and bring these back to Melbourne (hence the different businesses in the complex including Collectors Corner). Greg worked his way up in the business becoming the manager in the early 90’s, taking pride in the quality stock, terrific presentation and relevant customer information, which is still a trademark for Gardenworld today. Greg joined the sales team at Garden City Plastics (GCP) in 2001. Over the past 19 years he has been involved in various committees with the Nursery and Garden Industry of Victoria, including being on the board for 6 years, and is currently on the board of Landscape Victoria which is exposing GCP to another side of the plant world.
