The Company operates from three sites in the UK.

The principle site is at Pinchbeck near Spalding in Lincolnshire. This is the head office address as well as the Company's main site for growing protected flower crops such as tulips and lilies and also the primary packing facility for a wide range of flowers and added value arrangements.

The second site is located just outside Lincoln at Nocton Estate. Protected crops are also grown and packed here along with the majority of our field grown flowers.

The third site is close to Penzance in Cornwall, operations here relate to the growing, packing and distribution of daffodil bulbs and flowers.

Our forth site in southern Portugal primarily grows field crops and lilies in order to extend the season of some key crops.

We employ approx 500 people across the UK and are part of a Group of Companies known as Bulbs and Flowers International which is itself part of the Belgian based UNIVEG group.
