Wyevale used planted-up furniture and a fireplace setting to create an outdoor room focusing on the use of the garden as a place to entertain and an additional room to decorate with plants.

Parkers Nurseries was highly commended for their boldly coloured display tying in the colour themes of their Garden Cocktails range with parasols, picnic plates and cutlery, cushions and sweets.

Gedney Bulbs was commended for their clean and fresh display of tiered alpines and bookcase of bulbs which made a great use of space.

Key Essentials was commended for their innovative display of air plants using boat shaped units, crates and hanging branches demonstrating how even small products can be displayed effectively.

The judges for 2015 were Marcus Cousins from Aylett Nurseries, Kevin Waters from Kevin Waters Consultancy and Trevor Pfeiffer from Garden Trade News.

Presenting the awards judge Kevin Waters commented: "There are some fantastic plant displays at the show this year with the standard being incredibly high. Some of the most effective and innovative ideas do not involve spending a lot of money and are easy to replicate in a garden retail setting."

He added: "The winning display from Wyevale Nurseries really demonstrates how a simple idea could easily be translated into a plantarea providing inspiration for customers about making greater use of their outdoor room."

Wyevale Nurseries launched Leucanthemum ‘Daisy Chains’, Geranium ‘Little Charmer’, Salvia greggii ‘Joy’ and Hebe ‘Super Red’, all produced by New World Plants.
