PLANT design and display specialists, I Want Plants, is expanding its team following a raft of high profile contract wins – including The Alchemist in Media City and office letting giant Bruntwood.

The Hale-based family business is adding two more members – an administration assistant and an exterior maintenance technician – to its 25-strong team, to assist with servicing contracts across the North West and the Midlands.

The company provides inspirational green interiors and exteriors for offices, hotels and restaurants.

Director Richard Rowlands, said: “We are seeing growth in all areas of our business – pun intended – from rental plants for offices to more creative projects for brands like UK Fast and The Alchemist in Media City.

“We are also working in new areas for us such as Leeds and Birmingham.”

I Want Plants recently created an open-air roof garden at Bruntwood’s £8million flagship development Neo in the heart of Manchester.

It also furnished Living Venture’s city centre Grand Pacific restaurant with displays which included two enormous Banana Trees and nine large palm trees in custom-made charred planters.

I Want Plants, based in Hale, is the commercial branch of the business, running alongside I Want Trees which is aimed at the residential market offering instant gardens, mature fully-grown trees, and privacy hedges.
