A Cornish garden centre is celebrating after scooping not just one but three awards.
Trelawney@Wadebridge was crowned the Best Destination Garden Centre, was also named as having the Best Plant Area and was named the top Garden Products Retailer?in the region at the Garden Centre Association?s Wales and West region?s annual presentation evening in Bath.
Peter Burks, the general manager of the award-winning garden centre, said: ?It was wonderful to bring home not one but three coveted GCA awards.
“They are a testament to the hard work of the team at the garden centre and everyone?s desire to be the very best at what we do. We?re extremely proud of these achievements.?
The awards are decided by the results of annual inspections, which take place at all GCA garden centres.
Garden centres have no advance warning about when their inspection will take place and they do not have the option to turn away the inspector.
The Best Destination Garden Centre awards go to the members which scored the highest overall mark in the area in their annual inspections.
The three top scoring centres overall, nationally, in both the Destination Garden Centre and Garden Centre categories will be re-inspected before the titles of Garden Centre of the Year and Destination Garden Centre of the Year are announced at the GCA annual conference taking place in January 2015.
One of Cornwall?s largest and leading independent garden centres, Trelawney@Wadebridge was originally launched in 1970 as a nursery by Frank and Marion Danning.
The garden centre provides customers?with a wide range of quality gardening products including plants, furniture, barbecues, gifts and food items as well as a restaurant with 240 covers.
More than eight years ago the company launched a sister garden centre in North Devon, Trelawney@Ashford and is opening its third garden centre Trelawney@Probus on a green-field site in Cornwall next year.
