Mike Easom is to leave Garden Inspirations at Welland Vale nursery, where he set up a garden retail operation this year.
Easom, who was previously at Buckingham Nurseries, is joining Beckworth Emporium in Northamptonshire as joint general manager, horticulture manager, grounds manager and ice skating manager.
He said: "Garden Inspirations has been an amazing challenge for me building a garden centre from scratch with Laurence Middleton and team Welland Vale. The owners are delighted with the results. Garden Inspirations is fully set up and is in the best situation possible for the future.
"I have been training Jo Mitton for the last nine months and I'm pleased to be handing the reins over to her. She will become retail manager."
