HTA president Caroline Owen said: "The last nine months have been a period of review and reflection for the HTA as the board has sought to build on the association’s many strengths and look to the future. We were delighted to announce the appointment of Carol Paris as our new chief executive in the summer and these new board appointments bring to the HTA new levels of support and insight to underpin this important work."
The new board members join Ian Ashton of Lowaters Nursery, Stan Green of Growforth, John Lord of John Woods Nurseries, David Norman of Abercorn Plant and Garden Centre, and Caroline Owen of Scotsdales Garden Centre.
