(Reuters) – Swiss group Syngenta plans to divest its premium flowers seeds business from its Lawn and Garden operating unit, it said on Wednesday.
 
Syngenta, which has rebuffed takeover advances from Monsanto , said the move would let the business “play a leading role in the consolidation of the home gardening market, which is taking place in response to changes in the distribution and retail channels driven by shifts in consumer preferences”.
