Stars of production horticulture get set for tonight's UK Grower Awards 2016

The stars of the UK production horticulture industry are preparing to gather in London this evening to hear who will take home a trophy from this year's prestigious UK Grower Awards, hosted by Horticulture Week.

The UK Grower Awards 2016 shortlist which includes production businesses which are up for single and multiple awards, and firms from which individuals have been nominated for awards, was selected from this year's crop of entries from leading UK ornamental, vegetable and fruit production horticulture businesses.

Shortlisted entries then went through a final judging day which saw winners in each category selected by a team of expert independent judges in central London in January.

This year's judges were Jack Ward, chief executive of the British Growers Association, independent nursery stock crop consultant John Adlam, AB Agronomy joint managing director Andy Richardson, AHDB Horticulture fruit expert Andrew Tinsley, Stockbridge Technology Centre chief executive Graham Ward and independent garden industry consultant Neville Stein.

Horticulture Week is grateful to the following sponsors for their support of the 2016 awards contest, dinner and presentation which is the UK production sector's social and networking event of the year: AG Recruitment, Cocogreen, De Lacy, ICL Lallemand, HTA, Jiffy, Rijk Zwaan, Levington Advance Solutions LS Systems, New Spitalfields Market, NFU, Rijk Zwaan and Vitax.
