  Business Summary   
  Vendor Direct is delighted to offer for sale this specialist conifer and tree nursery, which was established by our client in 1966 and which is only now being offered to the market due to our client's wish to retire. The business trades 7 days a week and generates a turnover in the region of 108,535 per annum with a gross profit of 64%, with further financial information available through our client. The business specialises in conifers, firs, ornamentals, soft fruit trees and hedges, along with a selection of complementary products. A large proportion of the turnover is generated from wholesale purchases by garden centres, landscape gardeners and councils although recently our client has encouraged more retail sales. We feel the turnover could be further increased by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business to all sectors, as there has been little advertising done. Our client has successfully operated the business using traditional methods of production which leaves a new owner plenty of scope to utilise new technologies to their advantage. There is huge scope to develop a strong internet presence and create a website with on-line ordering facilities and utilise email communications, which will help take this nursery business to the next level. The business has an enviable reputation and a loyal customer base, enjoying much repeat trade. The nursery currently employs 2 full time and 3 part time staff and has very low overheads and the current owner has always worked as required to maintain this. The wide range of competitively priced produce on offer has always ensured successful trading. Our client has advised that by pricing the business based on asset and stock value, a new owner should get a rapid return on their investment. Our client is also willing to assist during the handover which will ensure a seamless transition of ownership. This this is an ideal opportunity to acquire an already popular specialist conifer and tree nursery with huge scope for future development. Early negotiations with Vendor Direct must come highly recommended.
