Market Leaders in the Disposal and Acquisitions of Horticultural Businesses


Quinton Edwards are recognized as market leaders in the disposal and acquisition of Garden Centres, Plant Centres and horticultural businesses throughout the United Kingdom and consequently our valuations are based on our experience in undertaking this work over many years.

Many valuers instructed to undertake garden centre valuations state that there are relatively few comparables available. This is correct if you are not a specialist however at Quinton Edwards we have been involved in the sale, letting and acquisition of garden centre and horticultural businesses for over 25 years. We are able to arrive at valuations that are strongly underpinned by transactions.

In our last financial year Simon Quinton Smith undertook 98 valuations at a total value of £268 million.
