Ernie smith founder of Dinsan Nursery


Dinsan Nursery is located in Dingley Village, Australia where we have been supplying the wholesale industry with Advanced Trees and Plants since 1959.

Our nursery site houses a large Cash & Carry Trade sales outlet with an extensive production growing area.

The original founder, Ern Smith adopted the name Dinsan when he sent a telegram to Japan. The telegram only allowed six characters so Dingley Sand became Dinsan and was used for his budding nursery business.
