Acquisition cultivates expansion as online houseplant retailers join forces

GrowTropicals Ltd, a Leeds-based rare and unusual houseplant specialist, has acquired the online houseplant retailer House of Kojo.

The acquisition brings together two digital retailers in the houseplant industry. It will increase operational efficiencies and ensure customers can access one of the UK’s largest selections of unique houseplants.

House of Kojo’s operations will move to Leeds and to meet demand, the combined business’s team is expected to grow by 30% over the next three months. House of Kojo and GrowTropicals will continue to operate as separate entities.

Jacob James, CEO at GrowTropicals, said: “We are thrilled to welcome House of Kojo to the GrowTropicals family.

“House of Kojo’s focus on providing a wide variety of houseplants, along with their respected name in the houseplant community, aligns perfectly with our mission of bringing unique and beautiful plants to homes across the UK.

“We are excited to take this next step in our growth journey and look forward to serving even more customers with the best selection and service in the industry.”
