For the second year in a row Twickenham Squire’s has won the Garden Centre Association?s prestigious ?Ruxley Rose? award for the best plant retailer in the UK.

Garden centres across the UK were inspected and judged by the GCA, who were looking for a garden centre with the best plant area, with excellent plant quality and a wide range of plants available.

The award was given to Squire?s at the GCA annual conference, which was held at The Grand Hotel in Brighton 24-27th January. More than 300 delegates attended the event, which recognises some of the great talent in the horticultural industry around the UK.

Other awards for received by Squire?s included best indoor lifestyle retailer (Squire?s Shepperton), and ?Rising Stars? finalist Matt Tanner of Squire?s Badshot Lea

Squire?s Deputy Chairman Sarah Squire said: ?We are absolutely delighted that Squire?s Twickenham has been awarded ?Best Plant Retailer?, and Squire?s Shepperton ?Best Indoor Lifestyle Retailer?. These prestigious awards recognise the talent and dedication of the Squire?s team, who work passionately to deliver great plants, products and gifts, and give customers a fantastic shopping experience.

?We are thrilled to have this recognition from our trade organisation, the Garden Centre Association, who set the standards for excellence in the industry.?

2016 is the 50th anniversary of the GCA, and the 80th anniversary of Squire?s Garden Centres.
