Tyfu Cymru is a Welsh Government funded initiative and has been operating since 2017, with funding secure until 2023. It has created a database of over 430 Welsh horticulture businesses. In 2020 it launched a Commercial Horticulture Action Plan 2020, a roadmap for the future of horticulture in Wales. Boosting horticulture is key to the Welsh Government’s plans to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic and has been identified by their Green Recovery Taskforce as a route to accelerating Wales’ transition to a low-carbon economy and a healthier, more equal nation.
