The North Thames region covers East Anglia, London and across to Oxfordshire. All GCA Garden Centres are audited annually and the awards are given out on the basis of these scores.

It was a fantastic event for the garden centre - as well as this top award, Perrywood also won the following:

  • The Barton Grange Trophy for Innovation and Creativity
  • Best Indoor Lifestyle Retail
  • National Finalist in the Ruxley Rose Competition for Best Plant Area (one of ten plant areas who will now be audited again in September with the overall winner to be announced in January 2018).
