Winter Garden, Florida

Our family first came to Florida in the early 1900’s. They were proud of being hard working, independent people, whose word was as good as gold. They worked in virtually all segments of the citrus industry and their diligence resulted in them becoming respected and vital members of the community.

By the early 40’s we were nursery and grove owners in eastern Orange and Seminole counties. Our family mostly attended the University of Florida and joined the family business.

Patsy’s Nursery was started by Patsy Fabry when she was in her 30’s as a hobby, selling first to family and friends, but soon as a full fledged, profitable business. Patsy’s was quickly supplying over 100,000 trees a year to the community. That root stock provided the seed trees that Blue Heron still uses today. The root stock was carefully kept within regulations, codes and recommendations from the Department of Agriculture. As children, we all worked in the nursery and groves from early elementary school until we went away to college. (Remember, we’re all Gators and proud of it.) Our kids continue that tradition today.

We love the citrus business. We're grove owners ourselves and work and manage them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (none close to the nursery, of course). It’s in our blood. We know what growers need and want. More than that, we know how to provide the best quality trees at the fairest prices in Florida. If you haven’t talked to us yet, give us a call or drop us a note.

Blue Heron believes that we grow the best citrus trees available in Florida. And we will stand behind every single one of them!

Blue Heron Nurseries is so confident in the quality of the citrus trees we grow that we guarantee you will be satisfied, or we will replace them at no charge. No long-winded legal terminology, no asterisks, no receipt required. That’s it.

There are a few exceptions:
1) If trees are damaged or destroyed due to freezes, hurricanes, tornados or other acts of God; 2) If you don’t nurture and maintain the trees in a responsible manner; 3) If a problem develops with your trees that we couldn’t have foreseen and prevented, we can’t be responsible. Blue Heron believes that we grow the best citrus trees available in Florida and we will stand behind every single one of them!

The Blue Heron Growing Process

Site Selection – no adjacent or nearby citrus groves to supply viruses to unwanted vectors. The entire facility is access controlled.

Greenhouse Structure – state of the art and climate controlled, regularly inspected and certified to be free of nematodes and to comply with the latest structural and propagation requirements of the Division of Plant Industry.

Potting Soil – onsite custom mixing to strictly regulate soil pH, starter nutrients, soil born pathogen and aeration components.

Irrigation and Fertilizer – components controlled by an innovative computer system that manages daily water and fertilizer inputs. Constant feed fertigation is used to supply needed nutrients daily.

Seed Source – our own certified seed source is regularly inspected by the Division of Plant Industry. In house seed extraction done with unique custom mechanized equipment to ensure optimal care and germination viability.

Seed Treatment – closely monitored treatment process includes careful enzyme treatment and cleaning, hot water treatment for phytophthora control, fungicide treatment for seedling and storage diseases, and climate controlled storage to ensure maximum germination.

Growing Techniques – seedlings grown in-house and culled heavily before transplanting. Sterilization procedures followed throughout the entire process. Once the liners are ready for budding, only registered certified budwood is used from our own Division of Plant Industry source material. A careful and constant hands-on approach is taken to ensure unwanted sprouts are removed and the scion is trained straight and full.
