Thompson & Morgan reiterates commitment to retailers following BVG takeover

Following the recent purchase of Thompson & Morgan by multi-channel retailer BVG, the horticultural firm is reinforcing its commitment to the retail outlets that stock its seeds and other products.

Chief executive Iain Burgess said: “BVG is a truly multi-channel retailer and 33% of our business is through retail outlets. We totally support T&M’s retail seed business and we’re fully invested in boosting this vital side of its business – we see it as an area of substantial potential growth.”

Thompson & Morgan head of operations Mark Tibbenham commented: “We will not be leaving our valued retailers in the lurch! A key part of BVG’s interest in purchasing Thompson & Morgan was to enhance its retail offering, and we’re already working together to do just that.”

Thompson & Morgan’s 2018 retail seed range is set to launch in mid-May, the company adds.
