To support growing sales and demand for new ranges, outdoor plant supplier The Farplants Group has announced that it has bolstered its team with two new staff members.

Zoe Bruce (pictured left) and Lee Hopper (pictured right) are the latest recruits to join Farplants; the company has seen significant additions to the staff for 2017, with a further four appointments having been made earlier this year.

Zoe Bruce joins as key account manager. She previously worked for the RHS Wisley plant centre and has seven years’ experience in plant retail. In addition to extensive horticulture, sales and merchandising knowledge, she has a background in marketing for the banking and education sectors.

Lee Hopper joins from Hillier as account manager and brings with him a wealth of knowledge from his 25 years’ experience in horticulture.

Farplants managing director Brett Avery commented: “I am delighted to welcome Zoe and Lee to the Farplants family. Their outstanding experience and knowledge is precisely what we look for to ensure we provide our valued garden retailers with the best products, support and services.

“We thrive on the expertise and passion of our staff enabling us to continue to innovate and uphold our reputation for quality, and I am pleased that Zoe and Lee have this in abundance.”
