We are GCA WINNERS!
The Garden Centre Association (GCA) is a collective group of some of the best garden centres across the UK, who are all inspected every year on several categories, from the loos and the carpark, to the plants, cafe, farm shops and customer service.
We are thrilled to announce that this year we have been voted
Destination Garden Centre of the Year for the Midlands Region 2022!
It is such an honour to receive this award and we would like to thank all our amazing team of staff who work so hard every day to keep Pacific Nurseries looking so wonderful all year round.
It is also so important to say a big thank you to all our lovely customers who motivate us to do our best every day and for supporting your local garden centre. Without you, we wouldn't be here!
Peter, director of Pacific Nurseries, Chester Road, said: 'I am thrilled for the team at Pacific to have picked up this award for the first time. We have constantly strived to improve each part of the business over many years and since joining the GCA, we have found the judging process to be a real motivator in trying to reach new heights. Being backed by our own nurseries growing such a broad range of plants selling to both ourselves and to many other garden centres across the midlands, ensures the main focus on plants is kept at our priority and in a rather old-fashioned way we are delighted to win a garden centre award and still to be called a nursery'.
We were also awarded:
Barton Grange Trophy - for Commercial Innovation and Creativity
GIMA Award - for Best Garden Products Retailer
We are now busy preparing for another surprise inspection coming up in September for the Ruxley Rose competition! This will be based on the plant area, and last year we came Runners Up in the whole of the UK!
