We’ve been voted GCA Associate Member of the Year!

We’ve been voted as Associate Member of the Year for 2022 by members of the Garden Centre Association (GCA) it was revealed at the organisation’s recent annual conference (January 24, 2023).

Success of the sector

The award recognises companies or individuals that have contributed to the success of the sector and is highly regarded and valued.

GCA Chief Executive, Peter Burks said: “Each year in the run up to the conference we ask our garden centre members for their thoughts on who should be our Associate Member of the Year.

Voted by GCA members

“Members vote for the company that has helped their centre the most, for example by offering the best service, new products or marketing assistance.

“This year we were delighted to announce that Wyevale Nurseries scooped this prestigious title and was presented with the Haskins Stewarts Cup at our 2023 conference.” Hundreds of garden centres and Associate Members of the GCA attended this year’s annual conference at the Mercure Blackburn Dunkenhalgh Hotel and Spa in Blackburn, Lancashire from January 22 until 25.
