National Plant Show

The lead up to the National Plant Show 2016 goes from strength to strength with a record breaking amount of New Plant Awards entries. With over 110 entries so far and counting, the New Plant Awards, sponsored by the RHS, are the beating heart of the show and creates an area bursting with inspiration for our visitors.

The Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) are currently working with Joy of Plants to validate all of the entries which will then go on to be judged on the day before the event. Our panel of judges includes Marcus Cousins (Aylett Nurseries), David Mitchell (Wyevale Garden Centre), David Hurrian (Gardeners World Magazine), Michael Perry (Thompson & Morgan) and Jim Gardiner (RHS) are looking forward to seeing the wealth of choice and deliberating to choose their top picks in each category.

In addition to the formal announcement in the New Plant Awards area on the opening morning of the show we will also have a seminar session focussing on the winners where Andy McIndoe, along with our judging panel, will highlight the victorious plants and give you the background on their benefits and how these can bolster your plantarea offering.

The HTA National Plant Show takes place on 21 and 22 June at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire. For more information and to register in advance please visit www.nationalplantshow.co.uk
