Name: Michael Perry
Position: New Product Development Manager
Michael works as Thompson & Morgan's New Product Development Manager, scouring the globe for new and innovative products and concepts to keep the keen gardeners as well as amateurs of the UK happy! Dabbling with plants from a very young age, he slowly took over his parents' (and grandparents') gardens with his ever-increasing 'patch', enjoying everything from herbs to hibiscus, raspberries to rudbeckias! After a few years at Otley College studying a National Diploma in Horticulture, he joined Thompson & Morgan, where he has constantly surprised with his exciting new products, with particular involvement in T&M's range of specialist catalogues.
Michael loves all plants, but particularly enjoys unusual annuals - such as new Petunias, Geraniums, Fuchsias and plants to give summer colour on the patio or in beds. He has been instrumental in bringing you the exclusive Geranium 'Skyrocket'® - a spectacle for your patio or decking and so easy to grow. Quick-growing and suitable for beginners as well as the more experienced, try some in hanging baskets or flower pouches too.
