Horticulture Week and Grower are delighted to announce the names of the entrants shortlisted for the Grower of the Year Awards 2008.

The winners will be announced at the prestigious Grower of the Year Awards 2008 dinner and presentation, which will take place in London on 28 February. The selection of the shortlisted entrants follows the main judging day for the awards, which this year saw a record 60 per cent increase in entries from the growing community. The judging day took place just before Christmas at Haymarket Media Group, publisher of Horticulture Week and Grower. Two remaining categories will be judged this week. Experts from across horticulture took part in this year’s independent judging panel. They included: John Richardson; Adrian Barlow; John Breach; Andrew Hewson; Sally Drury; Andrea Caldecourt; Nigel Jenney; Professor Geoff Dixon; Graham Clarke; and Leslie Kossoff. Chair of the judges was Horticulture Week editor Kate Lowe.
