About Rosebourne

Puma Private Equity first deployed funds into the business in 2016 and subsequently supported the brand with multiple funding rounds, totalling £6.7 million. In 2017 Rosebourne won New Business of the Year at the Test Valley Business Awards.


In 2022 Puma Private Equity announced that garden centre business Rosebourne had been acquired. Puma first deployed funds into the business in 2016 and supported the brand with multiple funding rounds. The exit was realised following a bid by Hillier Garden Centres, a family-run horticultural business with more than 155 years of expertise.

The company’s view

“Puma Private Equity have been a partner in our growth story since 2016. They have also been hands on commercially – particularly as we went through the Covid 19 pandemic.”


“Over the five years that Puma Private Equity have been a part of our business, the team have been instrumental in helping us scale. We’d like to thank the whole team for the support and guidance they have provided.”

Jane Smith Carol Paris, CEO at Rosebourne

Our view

“Over the past few years, Rosebourne has established itself as a high-end brand in the sector, with its modern garden centres offering something for all visitors. It’s been a pleasure to work with the Rosebourne team over the last six years and support them on their journey, and we wish them every success for the future.”
