Among the other winners were XL Horticulture which took home the best professional product or services award for its Sun Master Cool, and Phytolux which won the award for technical excellence for its Attis Panel LED.
The awards were judged by Garden Centre Association chief executive Iain Wylie, HW technical editor Sally Drury and HW editor Kate Lowe who presented the winners with their trophies at the special after show reception attended by more than 200 exhibitors.
Two presentations were also made at the event on behalf of the British Protected Ornamentals Association by the BPOA's Tracey Dunn who joined Lowe to hand out the awards which went to Blue Ribbon Plants for Home Grown Grower of the Year and Hillier Garden Centres & Nurseries for Home Grown Garden Centre of the Year.
A special report on all the winners will appear in Horticulture Week magazine on 30th September.
