  • Ivan Ambrose & Co Ltd - The business operates from two sites offering bedding and pot plants to multiples, garden centres and local traders.
  • Florna Plants Ltd - The business operates from around 10ha of commercial glasshouses in the heart of West Lancashire, specialising in the supply of a range of products including pack and pot bedding to garden centres.
  • Lovania Nurseries Ltd - The business supplies over 30 million plants to around 1,200 businesses every year, most under its brand ‘Love Gardening’, developed for garden centres.
