Discover Smith & Munson British tulips
A family business with a rich history and an eye firmly on the future.
Five generations of expertise has brought our business to where it is today, specialising in growing premium quality cut flowers. We are passionate about growing, and our love for flowers is reflected in everything we do from our brand to our final product. We take care every single step of the way from the beginning of the flower’s journey, when we pick the very best varieties for the season ahead, to proudly sending off our flowers.
We are always using the latest growing techniques, we have an eye for detail and we produce top quality blooms. Our flowers are grown inside modern glasshouses, allowing us to harvest every day of the year. Tulips and lilies are what keep us busy.
We can assure you whenever you see our Smith & Munson branding that you will receive the highest standard of flowers. We take great pride in seeing our name on every box of flowers that leaves our nursery.
Smith & Munson Ltd was founded in 1949, although we have been growing on our site in South Lincolnshire since George Smith bought the land in the early 1900’s. We began growing cereals, vegetables, flowers; you name it, we grew it. In the mid 1980’s we made the decision to consolidate growing just flowers and moved most flower production under glass.
Our five generations started with George Smith, whose daughter Hilda married Jack Munson and formed Smith & Munson Ltd. Jack Munson was a champion grower and was famed for his Begonias. With a big increase in the demand for cut flowers Neville Munson mixed the farming with bulb growing. Then when Stephen Munson returned from college he could see flowers were the way forward for the business and has not looked back since. The latest generation is Edward Munson, he has inherited his predecessor’s love of growing.
