Hillier Garden Centres acquires Rosebourne

by | Nov 9, 2022 | Chains, News | 0 comments

Hillier Garden Centres has announced the acquisition of Rosebourne Ltd, a group of boutique destination garden centres across three sites – Weyhill, Aldermaston and Hampton in Arden.

The acquisition of Rosebourne follows a period of growth that has seen Hillier move from 12 garden centres in 2019 to 19 garden centres and an online shop currently; this acquisition brings the group to a total of 22 garden centres.

Visitors can expect to see Hampshire based Hillier Nurseries range of home grown plants arriving in the Rosebourne garden centres soon, blending with the extensive product range already on offer in the centres.

“We are delighted to be adding Rosebourne with its three fantastic garden centres to our business,” comments Chris Francis, Hillier wholesale and retail director. “They are all really impressive destinations, we feel they are a great fit for our business. We are looking forward to getting to know the Rosebourne teams and their local gardening communities and inspiring them with our great range of quality Hillier plants. This acquisition continues the rapid growth the company has seen over the last few years and makes it well equipped to move forwards confidently into the future”

George Hillier, director of property, who has been working with the Rosebourne team on the project, says: “I would like to thank everybody from the Rosebourne and Hillier teams who have collaborated to ensure this acquisition has been as smooth a process as possible.”

Carol Paris and Charles Good from Rosebourne comment. “We are delighted that we have been able to secure a sale to Hillier with such a strong horticultural pedigree and a family run business. We share a very similar company ethos and values, with the customer at the heart of all we do. We believe both companies will benefit from this collaboration and look forward to seeing the Rosebourne centres enter a new and exciting era.”
