Let Glasgow Flourish Awards

This annual event, one of the highlights of the Gardeners' Calendar, encourages businesses around the city to add colour to their surroundings - be it through the use of window boxes, garden areas, containers or hanging baskets. 

Judging takes place each August and the winners receive their awards at the prestigious awards ceremony in the historic Trades House the following April.

This year the Silver Spade was presented to Coia's Cafe on Duke Street for their colourful floral displays at the newly refurbished premises. Lord Provost Sadie Docherty made the presentation.

Glasgow's renowned parks and open spaces are mirrored by many businesses throughout the City including restaurants, outdoor cafés, bars and business premises with floral displays around their properties. 

Many previous winners receive awards year on year as they continue to build on and improve their displays.
