Coolings Nurseries, known for their plant retailing on two sites close to Sevenoaks in Kent, have recently agreed to purchase The Potted Garden Nursery, which is located close to Leeds Castle in Kent.

The business is a retail nursery with the emphasis on selling quality plants.

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 of Coolings, Gary Carvosso, said, “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 Nursery 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 that Alexander Mackie Associates have found the ideal buyer in the great company that is Coolings. We wish them every success taking the business forward”. The official handover date will be 1st November.

We are delighted to announce Alexander Mackie Associates introduced the purchaser, Coolings Nurseries to Rob and Amanda Brookman and handled the sale transaction on their behalf.
