GIMA Director, Vicky Nuttall said: ?The Innovators? Seed Corn Fund very much captured the attention of a wide range of designers and innovators, drawing entries from all corners of the UK.? Choosing the winner was a very hard decision to make as the calibre of entries was so strong, but ultimately we chose the company that demonstrated true innovation, with a product that addresses a common garden task in a completely new way.?
