BONINGALE LTD ACQUIRES WORFIELD GARDENS
Boningale Ltd, one of the UK’s largest nurseries and environmental horticultural specialists, is further expanding operations after acquiring fellow Shropshire nursery Worfield Gardens.
The Albrighton company, which currently supplies primarily the construction and horticultural industry with more than one million home-grown plants every year, said adding the Bridgnorth-based Worfield Gardens to its portfolio meant it could expand its plant range and customer base in line with its strategic long term plans.
Worfield Gardens, which was founded in the 1950s by Sir Oliver and Lady Leese, is renowned for the high quality production and breeding of alpines, heathers, and perennials.
Boningale completed the purchase of the company this month for an undisclosed sum.
Matt Mott, Boningale Ltd’s Managing Director, said: “Worfield Gardens, which operates over a 5 acre site, has long had an excellent reputation for production of high quality nursery stock. Their range is the perfect complement to our existing portfolio of container and specimen plants.”
“We are delighted to welcome the Worfield Gardens team into the Boningale family. We are all very excited to be able to roll out our expansion plans and develop our portfolio of stock lines together; this should enhance the offering from both businesses to our customers, who will have access to an even greater variety of plant stock and services.”
This acquisition continues Boningale Ltd’s objectives of expansion and diversification within the horticultural industry and follows the recent launch of its Greensky department into the green roof sector.
