Celebrating 125 years of UK Environmental Horticulture 

2024 is a milestone year for the HTA as we celebrate 125 years of supporting UK Environmental Horticulture. 

1899 saw the founding of the 'Horticultural Trades Association of Great Britain and Ireland' in response to calls for the formation of a ‘league of seedsmen.’ This was because people in the industry were facing challenges, namely railway companies, rates, taxation, undercutting by seed companies, and foreign competition.

This year has seen our industry, and the world, face challenges unlike anything we’ve seen before.

At times like these, it is more important than ever to have the backing of a Trade Association who can support you, nurture your business and promote your needs, as we navigate through this unchartered territory.
