Two new members have joined the Horticultural Trades Association’s (HTA) Retail Management Group.
Philip Evason, of Haskins Garden Centres, and Iain Wylie, of Grosvenor Garden Centre, Chester, have been welcomed aboard by the group's chair, Caroline Owens.
The Scotsdales Garden Centre managing director said: "We are delighted to welcome both Philip and Iain to the group.
"With Philip's wide knowledge of retail management in food and other non-gardening businesses and Iain's extensive experience within the garden centre sector, their involvement will really help strengthen our representation across the industry."
The Retail Management Group meets three times a year and includes representatives from all sizes, ranging from the major garden centre groups to retail nurseries.
It is the HTA's main retail committee and provides a forum for looking at issues effecting the garden retail environment.
