The family-run business, based in Four Cocks, Powys, followed up similar triumphs in 2012 and 2013 by scooping the regional prize for Wales and the west of England at the Garden Centre Association’s annual awards, which were presented at Hillier Garden Centre, Bath, last month.

The Old Railway Line Garden Centre also received regional awards in the ‘Best Customer Service’, ‘Best Plant Area’, ‘Best Indoor Lifestyle’, ‘Garden Products Retailer’, and ‘Best Restaurant’ categories.

Raglan Garden Centre in Monmouthshire was also recognised at the ceremony, claiming top prize in the ‘Best Outdoor Living’ section.
