A little about Bryan…Dracaena Farm Nursery is a production nursery, growing good-quality, high-performing plants for the Retail market for over 23 years. A family owned and operated business, Dracaena Farm Nursery has received numerous awards at both State (5 awards) and National (2 awards, 2009, 2010) level.

Bryan’s been strongly involved in the Nursery and Garden Industry for some 30 years. He was the Nursery and Garden Industry Queensland President a few years ago, and just stepped down in November 2011 from 6 years of service at National level in his roles as Nursery & Garden Industry Australia Board Member, Vice-President and President, as well as a Board Member for the National Industry Advisory Council (IAC Committee) for several years.

He’s passionate about plants, gardening and business … and he also LOVES his fishing too, when he can find the time.

  1. yes, but who is Brian Hillier and what will he be speaking on???? When we got the list of speakers at the start of the year there was no mention of what each person was speaking on – unless you have heard these people speak before you have no idea if its about a particular plant or a craft or a song perhaps? Puts me off as I dont know what Im going to hear about. I would rather know the subject of the talk rather than the person speaking as it means nothing to me.


    • Please bear with me, Vivianne, as I consult, at the earliest convenience, one or more committee members regarding the subject or topic of Bryan Hillier’s presentation on the forthcoming Friendship Day. Thank you.


    • Hi Vivianne! In the morning today, I have checked with Bronwyn Hillier, the daughter of Bryan, about the subjects of their presentation on the forthcoming Friendship Day. Please see the SchedulesPotted Plant Society Schedules for the details.

      As for your question about whom Bryan Hillier is, I have included a brief introduction about him, though you would need to attend the meeting this Saturday on 12 May 2012 to find out from the horse’s mouth about what the Hilliers do and what tickles them.

      You could be pleased to know that I shall post guest speakers’ notes or essays to the Potted Plant Society website for reference and posterity as they become available upon my request or invitation.


  2. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to
    come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a
    developer to create your theme? Outstanding work!
