Interview - Linda Laxton, managing director, British Wild Flower Plants

Linda Laxton founded British Wild Flower Plants in 1986 from her garden greenhouse. The Norfolk nursery is now the UK's largest grower of native flora, with more than 400 species, and recently supplied the London 2012 Olympic site. The business is peat-free and specialises in plants for green roofs. Laxton will take over as International Plant Propagators Society (IPPS) president in January.
