Shoots acquires second garden centre
Shoots has announced the acquisition of Gardens Etc garden centre in Stanmore, Middlesex for an undisclosed sum.

The sale is planned to complete on July 19 this year, where the site will be rebranded as Shoots London.

All existing members of staff are to remain and, according to Shoots co-founder Piers Mummery, it will be "business as usual", although an official launch is planned to take place later in the year.
He added: "We have worked hard to build the platform from which we can expand our business and the timing is perfect. The team in Stanmore is very experienced and we are very excited at the prospect of working with them."

Shoots acquired a Gardens Etc centre as its initial site in Washington, in 2004, with a view to building 'a group of exciting and innovative garden centres'.

Rory Caffyn Parsons, owner of Gardens Etc said of the sale: "Shoots has made some very positive changes at Washington and I know that they will affect the same in Stanmore."
