The awards were presented at Squire's annual Supplier Plant Show at West Horsley where suppliers from the UK and abroad came to showcase their latest plants. 

Squire’s plant managers were given the opportunity to meet the suppliers, and find out more about the new season plants that customers will be buying in the next few weeks. 

Squire's group plant buyer Jeremy Hall said: "We chose Panebakker as our Best Hardy Plant Supplier as they have great quality plants and give us a fantastic level of service.

The award for Bedding Supplier of the Year went to Barnsfold for the second year in a row. They won due to their partnership with Squire’s – we really work together well as a team. They also give us amazing customer service, and the fact that they make deliveries seven days a week in peak season means that our centres are always stocked with the best quality plants around."

Squire's deputy chairman Sarah Squire said: "Our Supplier Plant Show is one of my favourite events of the year. It’s great to see the superb quality of plants, and some exciting new ones that we are stocking for 2017.  This really was an excellent show, and I am very grateful to all of our suppliers who attended. I know that everyone at Squire’s came away enthused and excited about the spring season ahead."
