Amenity grower Boningale has bought fellow Shropshire nursery Worfield Gardens.
 
Albrighton-based Boningale, which supplies primarily the construction and horticulture industry with one million plants annually, said adding the Bridgnorth-based Worfield Gardens to its portfolio meant it could expand its plant range and customer base.
 
Worfield Gardens, which was founded in the 1950s by Sir Oliver and Lady Leese, produces and breeds alpines, heathers, and perennials.
 
Boningale managing director Matt Mott said: "Worfield Gardens, which operates over a 5 acre site, has long had an excellent reputation for production of high quality nursery stock. Their range is the perfect complement to our existing portfolio of container and specimen plants.
 
"We are delighted to welcome the Worfield Gardens team into the Boningale family. We are all very excited to be able to roll out our expansion plans and develop our portfolio of stock lines together; this should enhance the offering from both businesses to our customers, who will have access to an even greater variety of plant stock and services."
 
This acquisition continues Boningale objectives of expansion and diversification within the horticulture industry and follows the recent launch of its Greensky department into the green roof sector.
