In addition to all existing Darlac accounts, Chris?s responsibilities will include spearheading new business opportunities with garden centres.

?I am really pleased to have been given the opportunity to drive this well established and extremely popular brand forward? said Chris:?It?s exciting times for Darlac as a brand in its own right, but also as part of the wider Mr Fothergill?s family. I truly believe it has the potential to do extremely well, and I will do everything in my power to make its success even greater?.

Darlac is also pleased to announce the appointment of Denholm Agencies, the much respected and well known horticultural organisation which operates sales teams? right across the UK.

Denholm will represent the Darlac brand in Scotland, Ireland and the North of England. This will ensure a much wider offering of the brand and give Darlac complete national coverage for the first time in its long history.
