Call for entries to the Grower of the Year Awards 2011

Horticulture Week is delighted to invite professionals from the UK production horticulture community to enter the prestigious Grower of the Year Awards 2011.

Run by HW and Grower in association with event sponsors Asda, the HTA and the National Farmers Union, the aim of the awards is to serve the industry by highlighting, promoting, celebrating and rewarding the very best in UK horticulture production today.

Growers of ornamental and edible crops, breeders, marketing companies, grower associations and representatives and suppliers of products and services to the growing community - indeed, anyone involved in the world of UK production horticulture - are welcome to enter the awards.

Businesses of all sizes are encouraged to enter this year's awards, which will be judged by a panel of independent expert judges drawn from across all crop sectors. What matters is not how big you are, but what you have achieved with the resources you have and given the challenges you face.

Winners will be announced at a glittering awards ceremony that will take place at a prestigious London location on 17 February 2011 in front of their peers from production horticulture.

Full details of all categories and how to enter follow. From everyone at HW and Grower, good luck.


To enter the Grower of the Year Awards 2011, you need an entry kit (enclosed with this edition of Horticulture Week). For more copies, please call Kate Collins on 020 8267 8188 or email kate.collins@ The closing date for entries is Thursday 4 November 2010.
