Rod is the most brilliant and knowledgeable plant hunter I have ever worked with. His enthusiasm for all that he does will ensure his new venture is a great success.

Incredible service over 24 years Rod. It has always been a great pleasure working with you, and I wish you all the best with your great new venture. I am sure Charles and the entire team at British Garden Centres will miss you. Our wonderful industry always needs people like you Rod, so it is good to hear that you are now developing your own business, I wish Austin's Plants all the very best for the future. Hope to see you at Four Oaks. Very best wishes, Paul.

I first met Rod at what is now Brigg GC 24 years ago during my time as a sales person, at that time (during the take over) Rod was like a rabbit in the head lights. Over his time I have watched as his love for plants shone through taking him all over Europe sourcing plants and navigating the challenges that brings. Not to mention the challenges of upscaling production to cope with the huge growth of recent years. You will prosper Rod, Best Wishes. Darren.
