Grower Of The Year Awards

Martin Simmons, Horticulture Support Manager at the HTA said:

“We were delighted by the response to this year’s Grower of the Year Awards and the standard of entries was exceptionally high. Our thanks to the judges, Alan Down, Tim Briercliffe, Martin Cowell and Phil Clayton, who found it quite challenging to separate out the winners, with only one or two points in each category setting them apart. 

The Grower of the Year Awards demonstrate the high calibre of UK nurseries who lead the way in quality, levels of service, innovation and peat-free production and it is fantastic to be able to recognise young and upcoming talent that will ensure our world-class industry can thrive in the future”
