The Green Heart – Glee’s horticultural hub - has crowned Darby Nursery Stock as winner of its 2019 Best Green Heart Display award.

The award was a hotly contested one, with many stands catching the judge’s eyes. However, it was Darby Nursery Stock that took home the title for 2019.


Judges praised the display for its commercial strength, and inspirational plant display techniques that helped to showcase tried-and-tested varieties as well as the latest introductions to buyers.
