Johnsons supply 12,000 plants to former Arla Foods site

We will be supplying more than 12,000 plants as part of the retail and leisure development on the former Arla Foods site in South Ruislip.

We were selected ahead of other bids following a competitive tender process and will supply a range of shrubs and herbaceous plants as part of the project.

The contract, agreed with landscape construction and maintenance company Whiting Landscape and landscape architects Macgregor Smith, is worth more than £30,000 and is our latest ‘contract grow’ project.

The development will include a new 11-screen cinema, family restaurants, a new Asda supermarket and petrol filling station, and create more than 530 new jobs.

Work commenced on site in October 2015 and it is anticipated that the facilities will be open to the public this summer.

Johnson of Whixley senior amenity sales manager Tony Coles said: “It is a privilege for Johnsons to be making such a significant contribution to a project that will not only revitalise the site, but also create new jobs and opportunities for local residents.

“Johnsons has a proven track record of meeting the demands of large, high-volume projects and delivering plants to a high-quality and at an attractive rate.

“We’re proud to be working alongside Whiting Landscape on this project, and eager to see the wider project unfold in the months ahead.”
