The company has "benefited from more efficient operations as its investment in industry-leading IT pays off, along with a shift away from traditional catalogues to a more web based marketing platform. 

"In addition, the company has increased the range of products that it offers online and now has the widest range available to gardeners in the UK."

The Ipswich based retailer says it "dominates the online market, with its websites receiving double the number of visitors of its nearest competitor, 16.4m visits according to Hitwise figures.

It has its own breeding operation and has developed plants such as Buddleia Buzz and Foxglove Illumination.
