If you’re looking to indulge in a little retail therapy, here’s a tip on where to find the best garden centres.

Bridgemere has the best plant area

Bridgemere Nursery and Garden World in Cheshire (left), part of The Garden Centre Group (formerly Wyevale), has won an award for the best plant area in the UK.

The gongs were dished out by trade magazine Garden Retail.

Sidmouth Garden Centre in Devon and Grosvenor Garden Centre in Chester were judged to be the UK’s best garden centres.

Whitehall Garden Centre in Wiltshire offered the best website.

Garden Retail magazine editor Matthew Appleby said: “Standards were up across the board with garden centres taking on the best of High Street excellence while retaining their own character.”
