Sharing landscape success stories

Last week the Horticulture Week team joined nearly 900 leading landscape professionals celebrating the outstanding winners of the BALI National Landscape Awards 2015.

As media partner, we now look forward to bringing those projects to the attention of the wider horticulture audience and key stakeholders. You can read up on a selection of winners on p24-29. A full write-up of all winners is available as a PDF at

It has been our privilege this year to promote the myriad ways in which great landscaping adds value to the built environment through our Landscape4 Places campaign. Many of the projects (see p30 for the most recent case study) have also featured on our sister place-making website, helping to take the message directly to property professionals, planners and other key influencers.

Professionals involved in the creation and maintenance of urban landscapes should feel great pride about their contribution to society. Such pride would have been shared by one of the sector's most eminent forerunners, Joseph Paxton - also the co-founder in 1841 of HW forerunner The Gardeners' Chronicle as a vehicle for sharing knowledge in the horticulture industry. We are proud to continue towards this aim as we approach our 175th anniversary. A crucial part of this is to spread the word of professionals' achievements using a communication channel Paxton couldn't have even dreamed of - a digital audience of nearly 70,000 a month.

Congratulations to all this year's winners. We look forward to sharing more of your achievements, and indeed those of all horticulture professionals, when HW magazine returns on 8 January 2016 in our very special anniversary year. Until then, daily news continues online. Happy Christmas.
