Awards 2017


Four independent professional horticulturists toured the country last year carrying out audits for the Garden Centre Association.  They checked everything in fine detail, from the car park entrance to the farthest corner of the plant area and everything in between. Every department was scored to a final count out of 100 to determine ‘The Garden Centre of the Year’. Cowell's are thrilled to announce that for the 5th time in 7 years we have been awarded this prestigious award. We would like to thank all our customers and suppliers who, without their support and loyalty, this would not have been achievable. It is also a huge credit to all the staff who worked so hard together to help achieve and maintain such high standards. Thank you.
