August 2006


Graham has just returned from the Plantarium event in Boskoop, NL (and a short holiday). It was great to see so many old and new customers there – it was one of the best Plantarium events for years.

The autumn show season is really in full swing. Graham will be at the following shows and events. If you would like to meet with him at any of these events, please contact us:

PFE is pleased to announce that we have engaged the services of commercial law firm Rawlinson Butler LLP and, in particular, the help of solicitor Frank Jennings.

Frank is not only an expert in all types of intellectual property law but is also prepared to get his hands dirty with the esoteric world of Plant Variety Rights. In addition, Frank is a fan of shotokan karate, aiming for a black belt in 2006. Consequently, should PFE have problems with any third party in the future, we feel that the assistance available to us may not be limited to legal advice!
