A cut flowers company planning to build energy efficient glasshouses at Risby has received a £150,000 grant to help its project blossom.

The Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership’s Eastern Agri-Tech Growth Initiative has made the grant to Matthews Flower Growers to buy a new LED lighting system which enable the normal growing season to be extended in the greenhouses, which will grow cut roses and lillies.

Ian Matthews from Matthews Flower Growers Ltd, said: “The grant has enabled us to introduce the latest technology into our project, which will shorten production time and enhances plant growth. We are extremely grateful for all the hard work GCGP Enterprise Partnership put in on our behalf.”
