Tyfu Cymru supports all sizes of horticulture businesses, small to large scale, organic, non organic or growing to organic principles.

As a project we have defined a commercial horticulture business as one which is registered as a sole trader, partnership or limited company, is active and generating turnover (whatever amount) and be able to provide evidence of this.

Although there is no set turnover or land area criteria, for eligibility businesses must demonstrate they are looking to engage with the project and be included in measuring success and provide relevant information to Tyfu Cymru Growing Wales throughout the project for reporting purposes. 

You are not eligible if: 

  • You are a businesses over the border in England. You cannot be supported unless they have a registered horticulture business and are actively growing in Wales for that business.  If you are registered in England we may ask for your holding number in Wales as proof of business activity.
