It’s also great news for the area and will shine a national spotlight on the district. Vicarage Nurseries is one of the 52 businesses featured in our book – Grow in Wychavon, so we’re very familiar with their business and its success.”

Bal Padda, Commercial Director from Vicarage Nurseries said “We’re thrilled to win this award again. The business is built on the strong philosophies of Makhan Padda who started the business. His beliefs are good relationships, trust, high quality, investing in people and reinvesting in the local community.”
