We now look forward to bringing those projects to the attention of the wider horticulture audience - and, just as importantly, to the attention of key stakeholders.
You can read up on the projects that earned the Grand, Principal and Special Awards at this year's event at www.HorticultureWeek.co.uk/baliawards or download a two-part PDF of our special report here - Part 1 and Part 2.
Meanwhile, we look forward to featuring many of the winners as part of our Landscape4Places campaign, in which we continue to highlight the myriad ways in which great landscaping adds value to the built environment. Congratulations to all this year's winners for their great success.
We are also celebrating this week the presentation to our long-standing technical editor Sally Drury of the prestigious President's Award of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture for her outstanding contribution to the industry. Sally has written for HW for more than three decades while guiding the HW team, her many readers and many industry friends on all aspects of horticultural practice, kit and machinery.
Presenting the award at the Institute's annual conference, immediate past president Andrew Gill said there can be few in the industry who have not at some point benefited from Sally's "vast knowledge pool". She remains an inspiration to all of us on the HW team for her knowledge, her passion for her subject and her professionalism, which are unsurpassed. Congratulations Sally.
