Meet the Team
Welcome to Hall's online, the home of GardenSite. We are an independently run business with two garden centres, an aquatic superstore, an Interflora florist and a fully e-commerced Website.
Hall's Garden Supplies established its first garden centre in 1952 in the centre of Castle Bromwich. In 1959 the centre moved 500 yards down the road to its current address at 209 Chester Road.
In 1958 a second larger centre opened in Sutton Coldfield and through the 1960s the two centres expanded offering aquatics, greenhouses and a full range of garden supplies.
In March 1967 a Florist shop was opened in Hurst Lane, Castle Bromwich offering local and International deliveries through the Interflora network. This site is directly opposite the site of our original garden centre.
GardenSite was launched in October 1999 with the simple principle of offering the same personal service and value for money that we have always offered through our traditional retail outlets.
We are still a family run business that believe in offering our customers the best service possible. We look forward to seeing you.
Simon has been an integral part of the team since 1984.
He can easily turn his hand to anything, his artistry and brain power is legendary within the company.
Simon enjoys his long distance sun holidays but can also be found hiking in the Bavarian alps. Coincidently, this is always at the time of the October Beer Fest.
Simon's forte within the site has got to be our range of Log Cabins to which he can answer almost any question.
David has grown up with the Garden Centres playing a big part of his life. He is based at our Sutton Coldfield Garden Centre where he looks after the horticultural side of the business.
David has a great love for photography and can always be found wondering the grounds with a camera!
He is also a keen ornithologist and can name a bird purely from its call.
David is currently under-going computer lessons and will soon be able to navigate his way through the site!
Nathan has been part of the team since October 2010. His passion and enthusiasm for gardening are well known amongst his friends and family and started at any early age, working weekends and holidays at the garden centre. Before joining, Nathan was the Farm Manager at Jimmy's Farm in Suffolk where he helped develop it as a visitor attraction by building a Butterfly House and developing the gardens at the farm, amongst other things. Nathan has worked in both the private and public sectors, managing national projects on behalf of the government, he brings this experience to his role.
Paul started working for the Garden Centre in 1990 as a part time assistant and is now our Aquatic Store Manager. His passion for hard work has made him into the person he is today. He works along side Andrew in the Aquatics Centre keeping the staff motivated and pushing the centre forward, bringing new innovative ideas and plans.
Paul is also part of our maintenance team, this takes up a lot of his time but he enjoys the challenges that are put his way. His most recent achievement has been to design and install our new marine fish department, which has been a great success! As part of the aquatic team, Paul is always ready to share his technical expertise.
