The Green Heart – Glee’s horticultural hub – recently awarded Golden Grove Nursery with the inaugural Best Green Heart Display award, selected by judges Emma Coupe of Waitrose, and Batsford Arboretum’s Sue Burn.
Golden Grove’s stand was selected for its ease of translation into a retail environment, the quality of product, and the eye-catching POS and display ideas incorporated.
The award was presented to Golden Grove’s Roger Ward, by Glee’s Event Director, Matthew Mein, Richard Newton of Woodlodge, the Green Heart’s official merchandising bench supplier, and Neil Gow, Glee’s Green Heart Special Project Manager.
Matthew Mein, Glee Event Director, said: “Our congratulations to Golden Grove. Plants remain the heart of garden retailing, and displays such as this one continue to set the standard. Thank you also to our judges for giving up their valuable time and insight, and also to Woodlodge for its continued support of the Green Heart.”
