Cherry Lane acquires David's Nurseries in Worcester

Published: 4 May 2018 - Kiran Grewal

East Anglian value garden centre group, Cherry Lane, has acquired David’s Nurseries in Martin Hussingtree, Worcester.

The acquisition of David’s Nurseries on Ash Lane takes place with immediate effect. Cherry Lane is already starting to stock the shelves with its signature great value ranges including indoor and outdoor plants, as well as the introduction of new garden furniture and solar lighting lines, Wild Bird Care department and a clothing department featuring big brands at great value prices. Boddington Koi Aquatic Centre continues to trade within the garden centre and the much-loved Olive Grove Cafe remains open as normal, serving freshly made food. Further work to develop the garden centre will be undertaken during the summer.

 

The garden centre, now known as David’s Nurseries by Cherry Lane Garden Centres, has transferred all 15 staff over to Cherry Lane, enabling them to remain in their existing roles.

QD Group had expanded its portfolio of Cherry Lane Garden Centres with the acquisition of Early Dawn Nurseries near Lowestoft in Suffolk in 2014, and Nottingham Garden centre the year before that.

Garden centre manager at David’s Nurseries, Eddie Reid said: “We are delighted to join the Cherry Lane family. Cherry Lane has a great record in running garden centres and we’re very excited about this transition, which will create an even better centre for our customers to enjoy. We are looking forward to showing customers our exciting new products and additional departments.”

Chief executive of the QD Group which owns Cherry Lane, Nick Rubins said: “The acquisition of David’s Nurseries is another great landmark in the ongoing growth and success of our Cherry Lane Garden Centres. We are a family run business and this is a major purchase for our Group. We are very pleased to welcome the team from David’s Nurseries and are looking forward to sharing with shoppers our great value, excellent quality and ever-changing spectacular new deals.”

David’s Nurseries by Cherry Lane Garden Centres is now the 12th garden centre owned by Cherry Lane, the UK’s eighth biggest garden centre group.
