Angus Davison, chairman of the buyer Haygrove Plants said he would keep the Ross-on-Wye nursery's 13 staff but change from growing ornamental plants to strawberries on the 2.4ha site.
Last month, RA Meredith sold its Huntingdon nursery to Hargreaves (HW, 30 September).
RA Meredith owner Chris Meredith refused to comment on the sale or speculation about the business reasons for it, saying only that "parts of it (the rumour) are true".
Davison declined to say how much he paid for the Ross-on-Wye nursery or what he hoped to achieve in terms of turnover. However, he did reveal that the sale was rushed through in a week.
Allensmore Nurseries was also in the running to buy the site and would have kept growing ornamentals.
Davison said: "As a stand-alone unit, it would not be sensible to turn it over to strawberries, but as an extra to an existing business it fits our labour profile. We also grow strawberries on a site half an hour away."
The switch mirrors that of Hargreaves Plants, which said last month that it would turn the Huntingdon nursery from ornamentals to growing soft fruit.
