Two of our management trainees have each been given a grant from a charity to help with their transport costs.
Chris King and Kyle Ross, who both live in Hereford, were each presented with £500 from The Rainy Day Trust, which is based in Birmingham.
Callum Smith from Bristol has recently finished a work placement with us as part of The Prince’s Trust Get into Woodlands programme.
We’re celebrating this month (April, 2017) after our March sales were up by 14% compared to the same month the year before.
Ben Gregory, our Product Development Manager, has recently just got back from attending the California Spring Trials in the USA (April, 2017).
Ben visited 12 nurseries in the country searching for some unusual plants and building relationships with breeders and growers.
We have seen a surge in fern sales! A 44% year on year increase (March 2016 until the end of March 2017).
We feel this is due to the plants being on trend in the retail, amenity landscape and domestic landscape markets.
