Gardening Direct’s Tony Milne returns to consultancy

Formerly Managing Director of Flying Brands’ Gardening Division, Tony Milne has returned to his practice as a horticultural and product development consultant.

Says Tony, “I have greatly enjoyed my three years at Flying Brands, particularly developing a cohesive business strategy, improving the quality of promotional materials, sourcing new products and plant varieties for Gardening Direct and developing their sundries range, but I am now looking forward to new challenges in the garden sector.”

Tony will continue to work with Gardening Direct on horticultural development and PR but is also working with other growers and suppliers.

A professional horticulturalist and businessman, Tony has worked in the garden industry for over 16 years. His experience is diverse and includes retailing horticultural products (garden centre, mail order, off the page and web based), product development, purchasing and supply chain management, commercial growing and research.
