“It is a great honour to be recognised so highly by our much respected industry association.  These awards are only given out where standards are exceptionally high and it is great to see Grosvenor’s high standards and consistency recognised across so many categories,” commented Iain Wylie, managing director.

“And to receive so many awards from the Garden Centre Association once again demonstrates that our ongoing objective to enhance the Garden Centre as a destination is receiving recognition, not only from our customers, but also from the industry itself,” Iain continued.
These awards have added to Grosvenor’s already outstanding achievement of being named Garden Centre of Excellence for an unprecedented 11 consecutive years, together with the announcement that it has The Greatest Wildbird Care Team.  Grosvenor was a finalist with both The Greatest Indoor Living and Style Team and The Greatest Garden Centre Green Team and received the Colour Your Life Green Community Award for their ongoing development of environmental initiatives at the Garden Centre and through its support within the local community.
