ScottsMiracle-Gro Expands Gardening Portfolio

Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has acquired Luxx Lighting in a transaction that significantly strengthens the lighting portfolio of its subsidiary, Hawthorne Gardening. It has also acquired True Liberty Bags, a provider of liners and storage solutions to dry and cure plant products. The Luxx line will be expanded and marketed and distributed in emerging markets. Hawthorne has been the primary provider of True Liberty brands, so this acquisition expands the company's harvest portfolio.
