Number one producer of British grown tulips
Building glasshouses and cold stores from day one, Fred Ellis laid down the infrastructure to produce tulips and many other flowers for the UK market.
Andrew Ellis has driven the business forward from his father’s small beginnings, facilitating the year-round production of a range of cut flowers, but specialising in forcing tulips. Today Poplar Farm Flowers, with its associated businesses, is one of the largest tulip flower producers in the world. This massive scale could not happen without equally massive investment and a fully committed workforce.
Industry-leading mechanisation and specialised automation goes hand in hand with improved staff facilities and a relentless search for better growing techniques and varietal selection.
This commitment to continual improvement is what firmly places Poplar Farm Flowers as the number one producer of British grown tulips, supplying many of the country’s leading supermarkets and online retailers.
We pride ourselves on sustainable, ethical and responsible growing, creating strong and lasting strategic partnerships with both our bulb growers and our customers.
