Morrisons acquires Lincolnshire outdoor plant business

Morrisons has acquired outdoor plant supplier Lansen Nursery.

Based in Spalding, the company has been supplying Morrisons for the last 20 years.

Morrisons said the purchase will enable it to further develop its garden centres and expand the range of outdoor plants available to customers. All 25 of Lansen’s staff members will become part of Morrisons’ team.

Andew Thornber, Morrisons’ manufacturing director, said: “We’re already the single biggest customer for British farmers and the addition of Lansen Nursery to our manufacturing business will give us a strong position in horticulture. Uniquely, we will be able to control the quality and cost of plants that are grown for sale in our supermarkets.”

The acquisition will complement the retailer’s existing Flowerworld business in Derby which packs the majority of all the fresh cut flowers and bouquets that are sold in Morrisons stores.
