Darryl and Renee Pierce are the new owners of Palmers Hamilton. The pair have owned Palmers Rotorua for over 20 years.
They love the industry so purchasing the Hamilton store was a no-brainer for them.
Darryl started his working life at a garden centre in Palmerston North in 1986. After gaining a Diploma in Horticulture with distinction from Massey University Darryl quickly became Manager at the Palmerston North Palmers before moving to Rotorua in 1995 with Renee who was a senior florist in both Palmerston North and Rotorua.
“I have always loved plants and people so I guess the garden centre was the right place for me” says Darryl. “I love the fact people know that Palmers are the local experts and can be trusted to sell the right plant for the right place.
