Closing date for Grower of the Year Awards 2010 entries this week

Growers of bedding plants, pot plants, nursery stock and cut flowers hoping to scoop top honours at the prestigious Grower of the Year Awards only have until Wednesday (18 November) to submit their entries.

Awards organiser, Kate Collins, has asked that anyone intending to post their entry, registers their intention to enter with her by telephone on 020 8267 8188.

Where possible, entrants should send their entries by email to Kate at kate.collins@haymarket.com.

Businesses of all sizes are being encouraged to enter the awards, which are run by Horticulture Week and Grower in association with Asda, the Horticultural Trades Association and the NFU -- and which are now established as the highlight of the production horticulture year.  

"What matters is not how large a nursery is, but what it has achieved with the resources it has, and given the challenges facing the sector," said editor of Horticulture Week and chair of the independent judging panel, Kate Lowe. Entry to the awards is free to members of the NFU or the HTA.  

Ornamentals categories include: Bedding & Pot Plant Grower of the Year, Nursery Stock Grower of the Year and Cut Flower Grower of the Year.

General categories include Business Initiative of the Year, Young Grower of the Year, awards celebrating the best consumer and trade marketing campaigns, the best sales and marketing professionals, technical product of the year and the Science into Practice award, which celebrates the application of research to commercial business.

 

How to enter

To enter you need to complete an entry form which can be downloaded from www.groweroftheyear.co.uk. Alternatively, contact Kate Collins on 020 8267 8188 or by email at kate.collins@haymarket.com.

I will not be importing oaks this season. Will you?

I find myself in a difficult situation. A few weeks ago I was fortunate to be present to hear details of imminent changes to regulations concerning Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) and oak trees. I heard details, asked questions and probed the implications of these changes. That may not sound like a difficult position to be in, yet I am uneasy.
