Meet Our Managers

General Manager, Rachael - I have worked at the Bybrook site for 28 years and for most of those years I was plant manager. I continued as plant manager when Longacres took over in 2016, then became General Manager in 2020. I enjoy helping to provide a top-quality store for our customers to shop in. My favourite time of year is Spring/Summer when our plants are the main focus. I have a national diploma in horticulture and studied at Hadlow College. A career highlight is winning a silver medal for a small garden that I exhibited at Hampton Court. Outside of work I enjoy going on walks with my dog and sitting in the garden with a glass of wine!


Deputy Manager, Sophia – I have worked at the Bybrook store for 14 years starting at the tills, then moving to the seasonal department where I became Seasonal Supervisor. I became Duty Manager in 2020 and then progressing to my current role as Deputy Manager in 2023. I love creating a sense of wonder through displays, sparking excitement and a sense of joy for our customers and their gardens. I found my love for gardening working part time as a landscape gardener shortly after leaving school whilst studying graphic design at Ashford College. Outside of work I enjoy country walks with my dog and tending to my quails and chickens.


The Gardeners Restaurant

The Gardeners Restaurant is a family eatery with a light and airy atmosphere and tones of grey and green to give a fresh look.
