Established in 1990, Lansen Nursery is a specialist producer of outdoor plants, supplying high street retail and garden centres. The company also produce and supply product for the UK landscaping trade. Located on a 10 acre site in Spalding, Lincolnshire, at the heart of one of the nation’s largest horticultural production areas, Lansen Nursey produces approximately 3 million plants per year and is recognised as one of the most modern and progressive horticultural businesses in the industry.
Lansen Nursery works closely with its customers to deliver bespoke packages that meet their exact requirements, delivered on time and competitively priced.
