Forest Lodge

Forest Lodge Garden Centre, off the main A325 road between Bordon and Farnham, had its annual review from Garden Centre Association judges, who recognised the many innovations that have taken place throughout the garden centre during the past twelve months.

And this was reflected in the high marks awarded, making Forest Lodge one of the top garden centres in the country.

The Garden Centre Association expects its members to meet the highest retail standards and to participate in an annual inspection process, to ensure these standards are maintained. Association members set the benchmark for high standards within the industry.

Manager Simon Hughes said: ?We are proud to have received a whole host of prestigious awards in many categories, including indoor and outdoor plants, garden care and outdoor living, catering, and customer care.

?This has been a tremendous effort by the whole team and it?s great that our hard work has been recognised by the Garden Centre Association.?

Forest Lodge Garden Centre is a family-owned company, one which also Birdworld, which is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, and Garden Style Plant Centre, which has recently relocated alongside Forest Lodge.
