Fairweather?s Nursery is celebrating winning the Plant Selfies Photography Competition launched at this year?s HTA National Plant Show.
As part of the show?s 5th birthday celebrations exhibitors were asked to send in photos to help to celebrate the beauty of plants. There were three categories, Plants up close, Plants in action and Plant pals with a grand prize for the overall Best plant selfie.
The winning Plant Selfie, a stunning close up of Eryngium Big Blue, won the Best plant selfie as well as the Plants up close category. Fairweather?s Nursery will receive ?1,000 worth of advertising with HTA News plus the selfie is to feature on the front cover of the magazine. Sharon Lowndes, Sales Manager at Fairweather?s Nursery, who took the winning photo on her smart phone, was delighted to receive the prize.
Other category winners were Ball Colegrave Ltd. for its Plants pals entry featuring King Kong with Coleus Kong? Rose, and Bell Brothers Nurseries for its Plants in action entry of the 2014 Lincolnshire Ladies Tractor Run in aid of Breast Cancer.
All of the Plant Selfies were well received by exhibitors and visitors alike, and the competition will be back next year. In keeping with the show, the entry photos were presented in terracotta plant pots supplied by Yorkshire Flowerpots.
