Our History

Botanica was first established  in 1983 by Shirley & Colin Smith (Co-Directors). Initially operating as a partnership from a small shed in Berkshire, serving only local clients, the company went from strength to strength, winning huge nationwide contract deals with companies such as Vodafone and Goodman. The expansion meant that more space and better facilities were required, and with that, Botanica moved to a rented nursery based in Crowthrone, Berkshire.

Due to the increasing popularity of the company’s service, and the massive expansion of office space in the Thames Valley area,  Botanica bought a 5-acre nursery in 1994, located in Slough/Farnham Royal, Berkshire, which is where the company has remained ever since.
