Hilton Smythe is delighted to introduce to the market Brookedge Nurseries. This charming well organised family run garden centre was originally founded by our client some 20 years ago and genuinely comes to the market as our client looks towards retirement.

The Nursery houses a good variety of stock including trees, christmas trees, hanging baskets, plants, bedding plants, flowers, pots, fruit trees, compost, fertiliser and garden accessories. The asking price includes the value of the trees, plants and stock for sale (up to £20000) and also a premium of £20000 for the long leasehold site (with a very low rent )

There is a large greenhouse/shop pleasantly set out to display plants, flowers and garden accessories. Our client also offers a delivery service within the area.

Although clearly sustainable after many years of successful trading, we believe the business has massive potential for expansion. With new enthusiasm and capital injection to build on the existing loyal customer base. The size of the plot lends its self to the potential for expansion, perhaps build new buildings on site to create modern sales areas and additional revenue generated from food and drink sales in an onsite cafe.

Certainly the business would benefit from a marketing and advertising campaign, perhaps introduce a website to attract new custom, partically due to the businesses fantastic location on the outskirts of Greater Manchester and potential to target market the large residential communities in the region.

This is a lovely business, well cared for by our client over the years and is ready to take to the next level.



We are advised long leasehold. The original lease length is 99 years with 79 years remaining.

Rent is a peppercorn £355 per calendar month.


The business opens 7 days a week 9.00am – 5.00pm.


The business is solely run and managed by our client.
