About Shreckhise Nurseries
The Shreckhise family’s roots in the nursery industry date back to the late 1800’s, when Noah Shreckhise (pictured) founded Augusta Nurseries. The nursery was located on the family farm in Augusta County, Virginia near the community of Mt. Sidney. In 1935, three of his nephews, George, Charles, and John Shreckhise formed a partnership called Shreckhise Brothers. They started numerous business ventures including nursery production and landscaping. Plants were grown on the same farm used by their Uncle Noah. Landscaping was predominately done in Augusta and Rockingham counties with an occasional job as far away as Washington, DC.
