Boultons Nursery in name change

Boultons Nursery was sold by the Boulton family to Hortech in 1999 and ever since then, Hortech have kept the Boultons name "in recognition of one of the leading growers and forerunners of mass pot plant production".

Hortech said: "Over almost two decades of ownership Hortech have invested and modernized Boultons to become one of the forerunners of Peat Free Amenity plant production in the UK.

"With this in mind and to continue the Hortech traditions of innovation, investment and creativity it has been decided to change the Boultons name to reflect Hortech’s fantastic achievements within the amenity nursery industry.

"So, as of 1 October 2016 Boultons Nurseries will be renamed ‘Hortech Wholesale Nurseries’.

"We feel this is a fitting and honourable way to recognise what Hortech have done within the local & wider area and to offer Hortech a deserved greater presence within the industry as a whole."

Nursery manager is Lee Melady and Duncan Jones is Hortech director.
