The boss of a family-owned 1,200-strong horticulture and landscaping specialist, which has a turnover of about £85m, has said the company's acquisition strategy is "fundamental" to its vision for the future, with completion on a further four purchases expected to complete in autumn.

Surrey-headquartered Nurture Landscapes was established by Peter Fane in 2008.

The company's most recent acquisition was the purchase of Gavin Jones Ltd in February 2018. The addition brought sales of £30m and allowed Nurture Landscapes to expand further across the UK.

This year (2019), Nuture has signed heads of terms on four acquisitions, which are set to complete in the autumn.
