The firm produces 150 million plug-grown bedding plants, both seed- and cutting-raised, each year.
Earley said: "We will remain an independent company with an emphasis on Sakata's genetics and will offer growers flexibility as to when plants are delivered, so they reach growers at the right size and at the right time."
He added: "We are UK-owned and -based. Our order book is pretty good." He said currency realignment has emphasised the value of young plant products, with patio containers as the way forward for the bedding sector and cutting-raised plants taking more market share because of uniformity.
Sakata "divested itself" of its young plants business in the UK and Denmark in order to concentrate on seed production.
The UK seed distribution of Sakata genetics continues through Earley Ornamentals and the direct supply of its European logistic centre in Denmark.
