Studley Green Garden Centre has become the latest acquisition for?Capital Gardens. The company has expanded their portfolio to four garden centres.
Studley Green, owned by Hillview Garden Centres for four years, forms part of Capital Gardens UK expansion plans.

Plans will include a formula of expert customer service, quality plants and wider product offering. Footfall driving events and strong ties with the local community will also be in view.
New ownership signals exciting plans for Studley Green, which will remain open to the public as it changes hands.
New Centre Manager Phil Munn will oversee the change. All existing staff will stay on with the company. They’re looking forward to working with Capital Gardens to improve the centre.
Existing popular franchises will continue their offers. This includes a ?Doggy Day Care?, and Barking Barbers, the ultimate groomers for dogs.

Studley Green is an intimate garden centre

Phil Munn says: ?Studley Green is a fantastic intimate garden centre. I’m looking forward to working with Capital Gardens and my new team to revitalise its offering.?
Colin Campbell-Preston, MD at Capital Gardens, comments: ?We’re excited to have acquired Studley Green.
“We’re looking forward to implementing our unique business blueprint based on a strong plant offering. We will be putting our signature Capital Garden stamp onto the centre to establish it as a leading centre locally.
“We want to keep Studley Green at the heart of the community and look forward to what the future has to hold!?
Boyd Douglas-Davies, CEO of Hillview Garden Centres, comments: ?We have been refining our model.
“As we worked through this process, it become clear that the site at Studley Green wasn?t going to be suitable for this model.
“Whilst it is a superb centre, it also sits outside of our geographical area of operations. I?m delighted that the team have joined Capital Gardens as I?m confident they will flourish as part of their group”
