Bridgwater, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 01, 2009 -- The Wyevale Group is celebrating after being voted the 'Best Nursery or Garden Centre' in an online poll by the BBC Gardeners' World Magazine.
The voting for the awards was open to members of the public and received thousands of nominations through the BBC Gardeners' World website, making them a true reflection of people's opinions. It is therefore particularly rewarding for the Wyevale garden centre group to be given the coveted title of 'Best Nursery or Garden Centre' as part of the inaugural Gardeners' World Magazine awards.
The BBC launched their 2009 awards in March by inviting readers of the Gardeners' World Magazine and users of the gardenersworld.com website to vote on categories including most loved and most hated plants and vegetables, the most common garden pest, the gadget they couldn't live without, the best garden centre and best online garden centre /mail order supplier. The voting was opened to the public for a 3 month period in an effort to find out exactly what people liked and didn't like about life in the garden. Overall more than 7,900 gardeners voted across a series of categories.
The Wyevale Group achieved success after being rated the best nursery on 5 separate indicators which covered: value for money, service, choice, quality and overall performance.
Nicholas Marshall, Chief Executive of Wyevale, said: "We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded the title of Best Garden Centre in the Gardeners' World Magazine's online poll. It is a testament to how hard the staff work at all 122 garden centres in the group.
"We would like to thank all the garden centre teams and staff at Head Office for their hard work and commitment in helping us to win this top accolade."
