Quinton Edwards director Simon Quinton Smith said: "There really is a lot going on - that's the point.
"We had a plant centre in Surrey under offer in five days with three people screaming for it. It's partly down to a good year and because new people are coming into the industry, possibly after losing their jobs. Also, there is no recession in the garden centre industry and we are able to help people borrow money."
He added: "Quinton Edwards have found the market has remained very strong throughout 2009.
"Most of our clients have increased turnover and profitability throughout this year, while values have remained consistent or, indeed, increased."
Over the past three months, Quinton Edwards has sold Hayes in Leeds to Langlands, let Klondyke's Greatham nursery in Cleveland to a charity as a training centre, sold Fulbeck Heath Nurseries in Lincolnshire, let Ashfield Nurseries in West Yorkshire and Hewton Nursery in Devon and has a client who wants to buy a nursery in Spalding to grow pot plants and cut flowers.
