About Us

Julie is the owner of Summerland Gardens. She started the nursery in her front yard and expanded and moved to an old Hookah Bar/Sandwich shop where she ran the nursery for 14 years. When urban renewal plans came for the property she moved the business to it’s current location and lived happily ever after. With a MS degree in Horticulture, Julie worked at various botanic gardens across the US. She was the Curator of the Tropical Plant collection at both Denver Botanic Gardens and the Atlanta Botanic Gardens. She was awarded a Fellowship through Chanticleer Gardens and had the opportunity to study tropical plants in their native land around the world. Her passion for plants all started with a half off plant at King Soopers. She is also a certified Colorado Nursery & Greenhouse Professional. 



Haiden is the newest and youngest of the team, but don’t let that fool you! Her fiery red hair elucidates her fiery personality and performance. Her passion and thirst for knowledge drives her to be one of the most valuable hands on deck! She handles everything from back room inventory to enjoying greenhouse maintenance. Her journey began the 2022 spring season as outdoor crew, and we just couldn’t let her go, after making friendships, roasting green chiles, and gaining a deep love for succulents. She especially appreciates Marley, Cleo, and Bit the rescue cats that have inspired her to rescue a cat of her own. She dreams of longevity here at Summerland Gardens, so stop in and say hi!
