For the quarter to end May 2015, Notcutts turnover has increased by £1m or five per cent with plants and furniture "performing strongly".
Notcutts said it sells 30 different varieties of heucheras and sales have tripled through strong visual merchandising including a planted shed roof.
Furniture growth sees a move to "all weather" woven resin weave away from traditional wood and metal, with two-thirds of the range new and exclusive to Notcutts. Online continues its impressive growth with turnover up by 30 per cent.
Notcutts chairman Nicky Dulieu said:"We have had a good start to the financial year and are at an exciting stage in our growth strategy, from redevelopment and new build to acquisition. It’s therefore great timing that we can now introduce twp terrific new additions to our team.
Nick brings a wealth of skills and insight into brand development and customers in both leisure and retail sectors as well as in-depth knowledge of hospitality. I am extremely excited for him to join us in September as we plan for next year as well as trade this autumn.
"Bryan brings a vast depth of knowledge of strategic property investments, including retail assets having worked on major structured property transactions for both Marks and Spencer and Boots and will be joining the business immediately."
