And the firm's success did not end there, as it also won the highly-coveted award for 'best rose exhibit'. 

Upon receiving the good news, nursery manager Ian Limmer said: "We are absolutely delighted to receive these prestigious awards, especially during such a challenging year.

"I’d like to thank all the staff for their hard work in helping to achieve this."

While the 2020 edition of the festival had to be cancelled amid the coronavirus pandemic, visitors were last week welcomed back to Hampton Court for the horticultural favourite.
