The Frenchams Group - Greening For Generations

Frenchams professional indoor plant services company founder, Les Frencham, was born at Burnley, Victoria in 1881. As a young man Les gained experience at several nurseries; by the 1920s he was managing Johnsons Nursery in Richmond. During the depression Les bought a block of land and house in Camberwell and grew poppies and stocks while building up his own plantscaping business.

In the 1920s Les’ typical customers included the owners of private mansions, live theatres and prestige hotels. After World War II the customer base expanded to include motor showrooms, cinemas and retail stores.

During the 50s and 60s, while live theatre and cinema languished, the building boom brought the first big buildings and modern office design. It was also around this time Les’ grandsons joined the business. By the late 1970s a Queensland based nursery had been developed and the main operation in Victoria had been transferred to its current location in Boronia.

Current CEO, Tony Gerraty, great-grandson of Les, joined the family business in 1986 and the group franchised its plantscaping operations in 1987. This has proven extremely successful with The Frenchams Group currently have 30 franchisees throughout Australia. Local owner-operators offer Frenchams’ customers personalised, responsive and flexible service.

The Frenchams Group are proud to have been servicing the Australian nursery industry for generations, offering national expertise, local solutions and personal attention.
