Turnover was £31.6m, up 7.5 per cent against the previous year. Profit before tax increased 16.5 per cent to £4.1m.
EPOS, merchandising and finance IT systems helped grow the four garden centre, Dorset-based business, said director Glenn Carroll. This meant better stock availability and that staff could serve customers better.
Having larger gift departments and 400+ seat restaurants has made the centres less dependent on the weather, he added.
The directors said: "The targeted investment and developments over recent years mean that the group now has some of the most modern and profitable garden centres in the country and therefore has a strong base for future growth.
"The group's long term strategy continues to be to grow the business through acquisition, organic growth of its existing centres and the search for appropriate land on which to build new bespoke centres."
