We’re delighted to announce that Brimsmore Gardens has been named as this year’s winner of the Garden Centre Association’s Environment and Sustainability Award for the Wales and West region. We are always looking for innovative ways to operate in a more environmentally conscious way and this award represents a commitment from the whole team to achieve this.

The GCA inspectors noted our approach to minimising landfill waste by upcycling point of sale signage and using chalk boards rather than single-use signs, printing delivery notes on recycled paper and working with local suppliers to reduce packaging and waste for our customers. Other initiatives include the installation of solar panels and a biomass boiler, as well as the planting of a wildlife garden. You’ll also notice that we use biodegradable gift wrap and have stopped selling any single use plastics or glitter.

Protecting the environment and minimising our environmental impact is something we all feel extremely passionate about, so we hope to lead by example and encourage gardeners of all ages and abilities to do their bit to protect their patch of the planet.
