Obituary - Dave Knight, Quality Plants

David John Knight, co-founder and director of Quality Plants in the Flower Market, died in April, aged 59.

Born in Dartford on April 3rd, 1965, Dave began working at New Covent Garden Market in 1985, when he joined Norman R. Cole. He bought Quality Plants Exterior Ornamentals Ltd with business partner Craig Broadley in the late 1980s and together they built up a popular and extremely successful business. Dave, Craig and for the last 22 years Dave’s son Dean cemented long-term domestic and international supplier relationships, as well as a reputation for product quality and customer service that created a solid customer base across the South East of England.

Outside of work, Dave was a big football fan, supporting Arsenal. He leaves daughter Danielle and son Dean, their mum Anne and granddaughter Belle and grandson Kien.

His sad, unexpected and premature death came as a huge shock to his many friends at the Market. Rest in peace Dave.
