about coolings
Our Company started in Chislehurst in 1913. Seventeen year old Arthur Cooling, (the Grandfather of Paul Cooling), started growing market garden crops as a part-time occupation. He purchased one acre of land at the rear of Chislehurst High Street in 1920 and it was here that the first second-hand greenhouses were built. Coolings continues to grow and influence the trends in the Garden Centre market. Company URL:
