John Whittlesey

Owner of Canyon Creek Nursery and Design in northern California, John Whittlesey is a nurseryman, garden designer, landscape contractor, and avid amateur photographer. As a specialty grower and a designer, he enjoys interesting plants and creating attractive, water-conserving gardens that provide habitat for people and wildlife. Due to his early interest in salvias, the Canyon Creek Nursery catalog had one of the first extensive offerings in the country, and he continues to incorporate them generously into his gardens. John is a graduate of the California School of Garden Design. A retrospective of his career was profiled in the Spring 2011 issue of Pacific Horticulture.
