Allen Wise - Owner of Shady Oaks Gather All - Specializing in Florida Native Plants
My Name is Allen Wise, I am part owner and founder of “Shady Oaks Gather All Nursery” a small independent retail/garden center, located in Central Florida. I have been a member of the Florida Association of Native Nurseries since 2002 and the Sumter County Florida Native Plant Society since 2006, where I am currently serving as Vice President.
My passion is for the Native Plants of Florida and to share this passion with those who visit my nursery. Florida native plants use less water, pesticides, fertilizers and many times require less maintenance once established, which in turn, saves my clients TIME and MONEY.
I attend continuing education classes throughout the year to keep up to date on current and relevant plant and product information. I also attend Nursery and Landscape Tradeshows to see what is new and upcoming in the Industry to better serve my clients.
At Shady Oak Gather All, I sell a diverse selection of Florida native plants and a variety of plants easily adapted to our Florida sandy soils. My goal is to help make gardening a pleasure for my clients and to help protect and preserve our environment in the process.
