With the gardening industry turning over £15 billion a year, you can't afford not to be a member of the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA).
The HTA supports big and small UK garden businesses. We welcome garden retailers, growers, manufacturers & suppliers, landscapers, and service providers in the UK. No matter the size or location, if you're part of the gardening industry, you need to be part of the association that represents it. We run promotions that create extra sales for our members. Whether you want extra footfall or to reach the 1,000 garden retailers in the UK, we can help.
Our members get business support like training, elearning, conferences and market research. It’s tailored to small sole traders through to large multinationals alike.
We offer a safety net when things go wrong, our advice lines are great for legal and HR issues. If you’re a small business, you get cost-saving deals from insurers, card payment processors, and others. Plus, we can take up causes and concerns with government on your behalf.
Our members are part of a family who are all passionate about gardens and green spaces. Every penny we get goes to representing our members interests to government and securing a bright future for UK horticulture.
We help our members flourish by representing, promoting and developing the garden industry, so by taking advantage of all the services we have to offer, your business is sure to develop and grow.
The HTA Council plays an important role in the governance of the HTA and helps ensure the views of members are heard and reflected in decisions of the Board.
The HTA Council meets three times a year, usually in March, May and in the autumn, and is chaired by the HTA President. Each branch or region of the HTA has a place on the council and regional representatives also act as contact points for members in their area in addition to the HTA Regional Business Managers. For general enquiries please contact email@example.com
The HTA Board is elected annually at the association's Annual General Meeting and is chaired by the HTA President.
The HTA Board directs the affairs of the association and meets regularly with the HTA President and other HTA staff as required during the year.
Members of the Board are elected annually at the association's AGM held each autumn. All full members of the association are invited to attend and vote at the AGM.
