Our trend directions are underpinned with social, cultural and consumer research. We collate and edit this information which helps us judge the current horticultural mood, and then carefully filter this through into workable, commercial products.
Our sourcing portfolio is extensive and we only use trusted sources who hold relevant industry standards which we, and are clients adhere to. We grow internally where it adds value, which also allows us to control product from start to finish.
