Some Words from our Members

Derek-Jarman1.jpg [original]“My day job is running Hayloft Plants, a multichannel garden plant retailer, which means I don’t have much spare time. The GMG is wonderful, as I regularly receive e-mail invitations to horticultural institutions and gardens that I've been meaning to visit since I fell into horticulture some 30 years ago. All I have to do is reply 'Yes' and turn up on the day. And it's free!

Last November, Hayloft Plants sponsored a table at the GMG Awards Lunch at the Savoy, inviting key customers from TV and media, and we all had a fantastic time. The GMG is such good value that I've encouraged one of my colleagues to join as an Associate member. If you work in horticulture, it’s a great organisation to belong to.”
