Nursery Closure after 60 years

Anne’s family tree nursery is closing tomorrow after 60 years.  The economic situation and fashions in gardening and horticulture have contributed to its demise.  Allenton Nurseries near Ashburton has been a significant supplier of ornament and fruit trees in New Zealand for many years.
I recall visiting the nursery in 1980 0r 1981 when I worked at the Plantorama tree and shrub nursery near Timaru.
Anne’s father was interviewed a few days ago and the article can be seen here: http://www.ashburtonguardian.co.nz/news/todays-news/8613-nursery-pulls-plants-for-closure.html
