Palmer Nurseries has secured investment from ex Green-tech founders, Richard and Rachel Kay- owners and founders of Rabbit Holdings, a property development firm.
After 30 years working together in their respective businesses, the Kays and Palmer group (Palmer Plants, Palmer Landscapes and Palmer Nurseries) are collaborating to create an interconnected services business serving the landscape and construction sectors in the Leeds area.
Serving as a horticulture hub through Yorkshire, Palmer Nurseries will be operating as a click and collect concrete plant, a recycling site for garden waste, timber and rubble, and a cash and carry plant, with further opportunity for property letting.
The hub aims to appeal to local landscapers, builders, fencers, farmers and others looking to take advantage of the amalgamation of several services in a single location.
The Kay’s say: “Our commitment to supporting our friends in their entrepreneurial endeavours not only reflects our belief in their vision and capabilities but also underscores our dedication to nurturing this business and fostering a culture of mutual growth and success.”
Steve and Philip Palmer add: “As this new chapter unfolds, it presents opportunities for collaboration and growth with the third generation of the Palmer family.”
