The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) has announced the appointment of Brian Fraser, general manager and director of Oakover Nurseries near Ashford, Kent, to the HTA Board as a non-executive director. 

Commenting on the appointment Adam Taylor, HTA President, said: “We are very pleased to announce Brian as our latest recruit to the HTA Board. Brian has represented HTA growers as Chairman of the Tree & Hedging Committee for a number of years and his appointment to the Board recognises his continued support for the HTA. Oakover Nurseries Ltd has had a long association with the HTA with one of its founders, Tom Wood, acting as HTA President in 1988/89. More recently Brian has helped lead the development of the plant health agenda and this appointment considerably strengthens grower representation at Board level.”
