Scotts Miracle Gro say alternative wholesalers to Solus will prosper after Solus turned down a final offer from the manufacturer for the company.
Scotts was due to take over Solus by Easter but talks broke down when Solus owners the Yealland family rejected Scott's bid.
A Scotts representative said: "Our distribution agreement with Solus has expired, and you would have to ask Solus why it wasn’t renewed.
"Most of our larger customers buy direct from Scotts and we already have great relationships with Decco and Stax, so there shouldn’t be any reduction in sales or supply delays.
Our team of group managers, regional sales managers, sales representatives and their supports will certainly ensure we supply all the stock that is needed."
Solus did not respond to requests for further comment.
