Wyevale Voted Best Garden Centre
on: July 2, 2009, 3:13 am
Wyevale Group is celebrating after being voted the 'Best Nursery
or Garden Centre' in an online poll by the BBC Gardeners' World
voting for the awards was open to members of the public and received
thousands of nominations through the BBC Gardeners' World website,
making them a true reflection of people's opinions. It is therefore
particularly rewarding for the Wyevale garden centre group to
be given the coveted title of 'Best Nursery or Garden Centre'
as part of the inaugural Gardeners' World Magazine awards.
BBC launched their 2009 awards in March by inviting readers of
the Gardeners' World Magazine and users of the gardenersworld.com
website to vote on categories including most loved and most hated
plants and vegetables, the most common garden pest, the gadget
they couldn't live without, the best garden centre and best online
garden centre/mail order
supplier. The voting was opened to the public for a 3 month period
in an effort to find out exactly what people liked and didn't
like about life in the garden. Overall more than 7,900 gardeners
voted across a series of categories.
Wyevale Group achieved success after being rated the best nursery
on 5 separate indicators which covered: value for money, service,
choice, quality and overall performance.
Marshall, Chief Executive of Wyevale, said: "We are absolutely
delighted to have been awarded the title of Best Garden Centre
in the Gardeners' World Magazine's online poll. It is a testament
to how hard the staff work at all 122 garden centres in the group.
would like to thank all the garden centre teams and staff at Head
Office for their hard work and commitment in helping us to win
this top accolade."
The Gardening Club
Wyevale Garden Centres originated as a local nursery in Hereford
in the 1930's, when plants were sold bare-root by mail order only
during the dormant season. Today, gardening is a wide ranging
activity from real enthusiasts who grow specialist plants from
seed to families for whom the garden is an outdoor room to decorate
and furnish in their own style
Gardening Club is a family of garden centres. The group stocks
a wide range plants, tools, garden
and machinery to suit every style of gardening. With over 120
garden centres nationwide and a website stocking over 2,000 gardening
products there is something for every gardeners taste.
