Village Nurseries Acquires Miramar Wholesale Nurseries
Renewed Landscape Contractor Demand Propels San Diego Plant Nursery Market Expansion
Village Nurseries Wholesale, LLC, a specialty grower for the landscape professionals has purchased Miramar Wholesale Nurseries, Inc. in San Diego for an undisclosed amount. The deal represents one of the largest nursery acquisitions in California in many years and is expected to add $11 million to $12 million to Village Nurseries' sales in 2014.
Established in 1993, Miramar Wholesale Nurseries provides landscape plant materials for commercial property managers and landscape contractors in San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange, Imperial and Riverside counties. Its 200-acre site houses a 170-acre wholesale operation, a commercial landscape
center and an expert team of horticulturists.
The landscape center, one of the finest in San Diego county, will serve as Village Nurseries' growing acreage approximately 20% from 700 acres to 870 acres. "This acquisition is important for two reasons," explained David House, Village Nurseries, CEO. "First, it allows us to bolster our presence in San
Diego by annexing an excellent wholesale nursery in a great climate for growing plants. Second, it positions Village Nurseries to enlarge and increase our offerings to meet the needs of a resurgent real estate market in which landscape architects and designers will be demanding more plantings, and the retail segment will be demanding greater variety for home gardens."
As a specialty grower, Village Nurseries has forged partnerships with respected growers and breeders such as Monrovia, Anthony Tesselaar International and Sunset Western Garden Collection to provide superior, high-quality plantings that are more vigorous and disease resistant along with exciting foliage, interesting textures and extended blooming periods that more nurseries cannot offer. One of Village Nurseries key initiatives is to continuously offer new and superior plant materials that make it easy to Rethink Your Landscape™ and enable landscape contractors, designers and architects to create beautiful, enduring projects.
