Hidden Hollow Nursery is a small, family nursery, in business since 1982. We focus on
producing specialty high-quality, grafted bareroot liners. We are always on the lookout
for new, unique plants that are also commercially viable. Harald and Alex both have a
knack for recognizing the value in a new plant and quickly making it available to the trade.
Harald Neubauer was born in Silesia and eventually moved with his parents and siblings to West Germany after World War II. He worked in a nursery in Elmshorn and then immigrated to the United States in 1964 where he completed a one-year apprenticeship grafting Japanese maples, among other duties. After a stint in Central and South America working the veneer business, Harald and his wife Susie moved to Belvidere where they started the nursery and their family.
His son, Alex, grew up working in the nursery. While in school at the University of North Carolina at Asheville earning a degree in Environmental Science, he spent summer breaks in the nursery. Alex also spent time in Utah studying desert tortoises and then worked two seasons for the fisheries department of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where he met his future wife Amy. They moved back to Belvidere in 1998 and have been working full-time with the nursery since. Today, Alex manages the nursery.
Amy graduated from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, with a degree in Zoology. After several years working alongside Alex in the field, their first child was born and Amy retired to the office. Today, she works from home managing the office duties and raising three children.
