"Fran is a very unique member of the horticultural world.  Her ability to go above and beyond is amazing.  When I first entered into the world of PR, I was a lost sheep and she soon made me feel at ease.  Her way of working is great in that she stays true to you and your brand.  Nothing is too much trouble and the ability to make something a little dull (me) into something slightly interesting (again me) is no mean feat.  She constantly looks for new ways to promote and I wouldn’t choose any other PR for these exact reasons.  She’s also very cool….if you hadn’t noticed!"
