Tim Jeffries, commercial director of Mr Fothergill’s is leaving the company at the end of this month. "I have been here 15 years and in the seed trade 30 years and it is just the right time to move on to the next challenge.
"I’m not sure what I will do next other than continue to enjoy myself. Maybe I won’t do a lot as I am no spring chicken – perhaps more rugby tours!
"I will miss the garden trade and the fantastic people I have met. People is what it’s all about rather than balance sheets I reckon."
