Fishlock moved to the 32-centre Tesco-owned chain in November 2008 to take a role running buying all products related to plants, gardening, pets and aquatics.


He was plant buyer for Wyevale Garden Centres from February 1999 until October 2008.

A Dobbies representative said: "After nearly four years commuting back and forth to Edinburgh from his home in Worcestershire to Dobbies central support office in Edinburgh, Neil Fishlock has decided that he would like to spend more time with his family and pursue new opportunities in the South.  Neil is currently working a three month notice period and will be leaving Dobbies in January."
