Nurseryman Steve Chapman joins ICL
Experienced nurseryman Steve Chapman has joined ICL’s Professional Horticulture team as Technical Area Sales Manager for the Home Counties in the South East.
Steve was former Production Manager of the highly efficient and renowned Palmstead Nurseries. From propagation to finished product, he managed the production of container and field-grown shrubs and trees as well as herbaceous perennials.
“Managing and stocking so many lines year-round is a challenging business model making selective feeding programmes essential,” says Steve. “We chose to mix our growing media on-site and, with the emphasis on quality, were reliant on Osmocote including a number of the latest fourth generation products including Osmocote Exact Hi.End and Osmocote Exact High K.”
Sales Team Expansion
“As our business continues to grow and our product ranges continue to develop there was a need to expand our sales team in order to continue to meet our customer needs,” says ICL sales manager Adrian Thirtle-Watts. “Steve joins our technical team with considerable practical growing experience as well as in-depth knowledge of our products."
