by | May 1, 2023 | Community, News | 0 comments

The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) has announced its 2023 search to find the UK’s best growers.

Following its launch last year, with two winners going on to receive awards at the International Grower of the Year Awards, customers and suppliers are invited to nominate their best nursery business, or growers can self-enter via the website.

Martin Simmons, HTA horticulture support manager, said, “The HTA Grower of the Year awards showcase the very best in UK horticulture and last year two of our winners went on to gain world recognition! It is a great way for retailers or suppliers to show their appreciation of our nurseries and for growers to put themselves forward as being amongst the best. Please do join in to help celebrate our industry”

The Grower of the Year awards will recognise and celebrate best practices in sustainable production. Nominated by their customers or suppliers, grower members must be able to demonstrate their commitment to the environment through a public plan and must be working towards a target such as Co2 reduction, peat removal, or water resilience.

2023 categories
Young Grower (under 35)
Finished Plant Grower
Young Plant Grower
Production in Peat-Free Grower
Inspirational Business of the Year
Staff Member of the Year

The winners will be announced during the HTA Autumn Conference on 5 October at the ICC in Birmingham. Award recipients will be automatically enrolled in the AIPH International Grower of the Year Awards in 2023.

Nomination forms can be submitted here. The deadline for entries is 14th July 2023.
