Hilton and Tracy Blake

Hilton and Tracy Blake have been working within the garden and lifestyle industry since 1985. From owning small and medium garden centres in Tasmania, moving on to a large garden and lifestyle centre in SE Queensland, then over to Western Australia for 5 years as general managers of a chain of 9 retail garden centre and design stores, their array of experience and knowledge of retailing horticulture in Australia is enormous.

This knowledge and experience led to the development of Gro Australia. For the past ten years, Hilton and Tracy have worked with over 50 independent garden centres around Australia with outstanding success.

Every business has its unique personality and values. With an understanding of the goals and personal needs of each business, a personalised business strategy is developed to see these businesses grow into the most successful and profitable business they can be.

Although Hilton has formal qualifications in retailing horticulture and Tracy in interior decorating and floristry, it is their ‘hands on’ experience, enthusiasm and great communication skills that are their greatest attibutes.
