At Miles Nurseries our philosophy is one of team work. We feel this is essential, particularly in a business such as ours. The key members of our team are Tom Miles, Lawson Finnamore and Bel Grierson. Tom is proprietor and responsible for sales, customer relations and planning business strategy.
Tom has experience of many sectors of the industry from very prestigious private garden projects in London to large scale amenity planting schemes (the M1 junction 13 to Milton Keynes link road being his largest impact on our landscape).
Lawson is Sales and General Manager, our key contact for Garden Centres and Nurseries regarding sales/orders.
Bel manages production on the nursery along with our 'Oasis in Hoby' retail area. Bel is a qualified Garden Designer happy to give advice if needed.
Tom - "Miles Nurseries started on a 'green field' site in the autumn of 1988. I had been looking for a suitable site for the previous 18 months without success and so decided to start in a less than ideal location. Previously I had spent 10 years working in various sectors of the 'landscape industry'".
"I was unaware at the time quite how less than ideal it was, as the 'disaster' pictures show. Happily our windbreaks are now mature and engineering works have been done to greatly reduce the risk of flooding."
"Originally the nursery produced shrub liners and cuttings. Today though we specialise in ready for sale hardy plants suitable for Landscapers, Designers, Garden Centres and Retail Nurseries."
