Consolidation has slowed this year, but in one huge deal Flamingo buying Butters has created a group to cross over the whole ornamentals business. Newey expects to add more businesses in the future, while Neame Lea, which this year stripped out inter-company sales through consolidation into the Bridge Farm Group, expects to add £3m-£4m to both Neame Lea and Zyon Uk turnover in 2018. Dutch Flower Group is the biggest floriculture supplier to the UK, with a €1.3bn turnover.

This list reflects the breadth of the industry and includes bedding, tree, cut flower, bulb , hardy nursery stock and herbaceous growers, and some traders. If you believe you should be included, please email matthew.appleby@haymarket.com.
