Jason Croutch is the co-owner of Fraser Valley Rose Farm, a nursery specializing in those unique, hard-to-find, and historical varieties of roses that are no longer readily available in the Canadian market. Located on beautiful Nicomen Island, the rose farm is a blank canvas for Jason and his wife Lisa to grow mixed plantings of roses, shrubs, perennials and whatever else happens to strike them as useful and beautiful.
Following a 20 year career in retail management, Jason decided it was time to do something more meaningful with his life: grow plants. Jason attended the Kwantlen Polytechnic University greenhouse production program, and then took an entry-level job at Valleybrook Gardens growing perennials. He worked his way into the job of head grower before finally taking the leap to run Fraser Valley Rose Farm full-time. Jason is also quite active on Youtube, producing videos aimed at inspiring and sharing knowledge with backyard growers, budding rosarians, and garden enthusiasts of all kinds.
