Jan. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Terra Firma Capital Partners Ltd., the private equity firm owned by Guy Hands, is close to buying the Garden Centre Group, the Sunday Times said, citing an unidentified source close to the sale.

Andrew Dowler, a spokesman for London-based Terra Firma, and Nicole Sharp, a spokeswoman for Lloyds, declined to comment to Bloomberg News today.
