The Garden Centre Association (GCA) Conference, held in Lancashire, saw Perrywood named 3rd in the Top 100 UK Garden Centre League Table, making it one of only ten ‘Garden Centres of Excellence’ in the whole of the UK – and the best in the South of England.
Additionally, Perrywood Tiptree came third in the The Outdoor Living Award, third in The GIMA Award (Garden Products Retailer) and was a National Finalist in The Ruxley Rose Competition for Best Plant Area.
The GCA carries out an annual unannounced inspection of all its members and uses this to compile the league table. The association adds up scores for a number of elements including customer service, merchandising, sustainability, creativity and innovation, quality and range of products and much more. This is a fantastic achievement for Perrywood and highlights the hard work of every single team member.
Simon Bourne, Retail Director, comments: “To be recognised for our hard work, passion and dedication to bringing more plants into people’s lives is a real achievement. As always, we look forward to the new gardening year ahead. Continuing to be the best we can be, customers can be guaranteed some exciting new products and plants, inspiring displays and new customer initiatives in 2023, so watch this space.”
Perrywood Sudbury featured in the league table for the first time, at number 40. It is an amazing achievement to have placed so highly after only four years of trading.
