David said: “I am delighted to be joining the team at Floramedia. I will be handling the image library for the company, which has more than 250,000 images.
“We are also beginning to use QR codes on our labels and I am writing botanical descriptions and cultivation notes for the FloraLinQ web pages. These will inform the public on how to care for the plants once they get them home.”
