A Suffolk seeds supplier has taken root at a new £1.25million plant and storage site.

Independent agricultural seed merchant Walnes Seeds has relocated to Moat Park, Earl Soham after more than 70 years in Framlingham. The firm also operates the Suffolk Seed Laboratory from the new site, visited by Suffolk MP Dan Poulter.

Andrew Cooper, managing director, said: “The move is hugely exciting for us as a business.

“It gives us the potential to offer an expanded range of services to our customers, from what is a much improved, modern facility.”
