Garden Centre Team

Anthea  - Garden Centre Manager

I have been involved with plants my whole life. My parents owned a commercial nursery and you could say I was brought up in a greenhouse! I started work at Tamar View Nurseries 18 years ago as a plant manager and have since become the garden centre manager. I have seen and been involved with many changes and developments at the garden centre as the business has evolved and grown. My favourite parts of the job are working in the plant areas and creating our amazing Christmas displays with our fabulous team.


Dean - Shop Manager


I have been gardening since the age of 12. I have completed a degree in zoology throughout which I worked as a gardener. I worked in the plant area for over 4 years before becoming the shop manager.  Will usually be found throughout the year with his trademark white sunglasses!

After university she gained advanced RHS practice qualifications and has over 15 years experience in the horticultural world ,so if you have any questions relating to plants Hazel is the person to answer them.
