The GCA North Thames region covers an area stretching from East Anglia to Oxfordshire, including London, with Perrywood beating off competition from across the region to collect the Best Destination Garden Centre title.
It also won the Barton Grange Trophy for Innovation and Creativity and the Best Indoor Lifestyle Retail award, and was named as national finalist in the Ruxley Rose Competition for Best Plant Area.
All GCA garden centres are audited annually, with the awards made on the basis of these scores.
In addition to its four wins, Perrywood also came second for awards in Customer Service and Catering Excellence.
