Johnsons helps kick-start council’s new nursery project

Overview
We worked with Leeds City Council to supply its new nursery project to provide plants for various sites across the district.

Challenge
We were asked to supply a broad range of products for Leeds City Council’s new nursery, the Arium, that will provide horticultural support across Leeds. The nursery will grow more than three million plants a year to brighten up the city’s parks, roundabouts, flower beds, school grounds and more.

Solution
Our Garden Centre Sales business has worked with the council for 10 years, while we have worked with the council commercially for more than 40 years.
Therefore, we had an excellent understanding of what was required.
We supplied a broad range of plants from across our range, filling a total of 64 trolleys.

Result
We were able to further enhance our already strong relationship by helping the council kick-start the Arium project. As a key supplier to the council’s amenity projects, we were able to deliver our expected excellent level of service and product quality.
The nursery, in Seacroft, is open to the public and has attracted a great deal of interest, with visitors also enjoying the café, shop and children’s play area.
