    Introducing the people behind Casa Nova SRL:

    Patricia Robertson

    Dr Tom Henry

    “I’m a lawyer who is also a passionate gardener.  My idea is for our nursery to make available an exceptional range of irises, some of them not easily found here in Italy, others born and bred here. Our display garden will provide pleasure and inspiration and with your help we can paint a rainbow of colour across the landscape.”

    “After years as a gardening widower, I decided if you can’t beat them you’d better just join them.  So now I drive the tractor, when not working on my latest monograph on Signorelli or Raphael (each of whom, incidentally, painted irises).”
