Ahead of tomorrow’s announcement of the winners of the Virtual New Plant Awards 2020, the HTA has released the full list of entries for this year’s Awards.
On this PDF you can see all 48 entries, including picture of the plants and their growers/ breeders. Entries were received in five categories – Herbaceous Perennials; Annuals; Houseplants; Shrubs & Climbers and Trees & Conifers. All entries have been verified for their ‘newness’ by Joy of Plants.
Pippa Greenwood, HTA Horticulture Manager said:
“This year, with the industry going through such horrendous times, support for our growers is more important than ever. In normal years all plants entered into the New Plant Awards at the National Plant Show would be viewed by the show visitors, some of whom would ultimately buy the plants for their retail outlets and spread the word about the plants. We wanted to make sure that all the wonderful plants that have been entered into this year’s Virtual Awards are also made public for all to see and get the attention they deserve.”
Voting is still underway for the Virtual Visitor Vote, and the Overall Winner will be announced tomorrow, along with the judges’ bronze, silver and gold awards, and the ultimate honour - Best in Show.
