Team history and updates from days gone by....
A tribute to our late Chairman
Sadly in October 2020 we lost Alan suddenly. We miss him terribly as a husband, as a Dad and as a wonderful Grandad, but we also miss his endless enthusiasm and support in his role as our long suffering Chairman. Thank you Dad
Other updates from days gone by
October 2021 - A warm welcome to our newest recruit Laura
Laura joins us from a strong background in forestry and plant health and we're delighted to have her on board. She loves her houseplants and is already getting stuck in at the nursery.
November 2021 - After months of planning our new plant area is finally under way!
Over the last couple of years we've seen a huge rise in demand for our delivery service and we've started running out of space at the nursery so we're absolutely delighted to have the diggers on site this week. This is part of the long term renovation of our elderly glasshouses and will see a large new plant storage area for our hardier garden plants complete with new potting area and irrigation systems. Due to be finished by the 1st December in the nick of time for Christmas our littlest member of the team is in her element keeping the diggers on track!
Who doesn't love a digger!
February 2022 - The end of an era
After 12 years at the helm of Plants4Presents our wonderful nursery manager, Debbie, has taken early retirement. Debbie, has been with us since the early days and has seen many changes at the nursery as we have changed and grown. Her formidable organisational skills and strength of character will be much missed but in her place Libby our fantastic deputy nursery manager has already stepped up and will be leading the team forward as we enter another exciting (and unpredictable) year.
April 2022 - A warm welcome to Jose
We're delighted to welcome Jose back for a full summer season. There is always more to do in the nursery in the summer, from keeping on top of the plant watering and feeding to potting and pruning so we're delighted to welcome Jose back into the packing line and nursery.
