Nurture Landscapes secures second northern acquisition in six months

Nurture

Nurture has secured its second northern acquisition with the purchase of Botanical Group Services following the purchase of Heritage Landscapes in July of last year.

Botanical has annual sales of £1.6m across landscape maintenance, winter gritting, interior plants and Christmas tree installation. Clients span the corporate, education, health, retail and hotel sectors and include Liverpool One, St.Modwen and Eric Wright.

Botanical and its 33 employees will be integrated into Nurture’s northern operation. This will expand the area’s sales to £8m, making it Nurture’s largest region and representing 25% of the company’s £32m turnover. Staff will be relocated from Botanical’s Blackburn depot to Nurture’s office five miles away at Rishton.

Gary Collinson, who found Botanical in 1992, will work with Nurture as a consultant for six months to ensure a smooth handover and to guarantee clients continuity of service. In common with Nurture’s operations, clients will have the benefit of a locally-employed regional team with the additional specialisms and expertise of a national contractor.

Nurture northern region director, Nick Hills, commented: “I look forward to working with Gary and his colleagues and welcoming them into the Nurture family. Both companies operate in the same industry in the same region so I expect there to be a seamless integration.”

Peter Fane, managing director of Nurture, added: “I would also like to extend my welcome to Gary and his colleagues. There are great opportunities within Nurture as demonstrated by Nick who joined us from our acquisition of Parkview Landscapes five years ago and is now Director of our largest region.”
