John Fairey of Yuccado Nursery


Recommended Posts

Hello, I received an email that John Fairey of the former Yuccado Nursery and Peckerwood Gardens(now John Fairey Garden), passed away on March 17, 2020. I don’t believe he was a member of the International Palm Society, but some of Yuccado Nursery’s contributions include bringing Sabal Tamaulipas, Brahea Moorei, and I believe the extremely blue variation of Sabal Uresana to U.S. cultivation. Among many other species of plants from Mexico and elsewhere.

I received the same email.  I was sad to hear of his passing.  I only met him once but he was a very knowledgeable and interesting man.  I much enjoy visiting the gardens that he started and designed.
