Coolings Nurseries, known for their plant retailing in Sevenoaks, have recently agreed to purchase the well-respected retail business known as The Potted Garden Nursery, which is located very close to Leeds Castle in Kent. Chairman Paul Cooling said: ?We are over the moon to welcome the new team into the Coolings family. ?The focus on plants has always been paramount at Coolings and we look forward to being part of the next chapter in the history of this new site?.

Managing director, Gary Carvosso, commented: ?We will work with the current team to further improve what is already a successful and profitable business. Plants will always remain at the core of what we do and will not be rushing into any additional investment just yet, as we are mindful to preserve the wonderful charm of the site.”

The site is on the busy A20 close to the principle Kent town of Maidstone, and comes complete with planning permission for the introduction of catering and larger garden shop.

Rob and Amanda Brookman, the current owners of The Potted Garden said: ?When we were looking for a buyer for the site we were keen to find a company that valued its staff and whose core interest was plant based, so we?re delighted to have found the ideal buyer in the great company that is Coolings. We wish them every success taking the business forward.”

A very exciting move for Coolings as they gear up to the official 1?November handover date.
