Ornamentals production businesses of all sizes have more reasons than ever to enter the awards, now established as the highlight of the production horticulture year.

As well as categories celebrating the nursery stock grower of the year, bedding and pot plant grower of the year and cut flower grower of the year, the awards include a category celebrating the business initiative of the year.

The category for best new varieties has been extended into three separate categories: hardy nursery stock, bedding & pot plants and herbaceous perennials.

Other categories of interest to everyone working in ornamental horticulture include the award for the most outstanding young grower of the year, awards celebrating the best trade marketing campaigns, the best sales and marketing professionals and technical product of the year.

In addition, thanks to Floramedia, successful entrants into any of these three new awards will receive between 10,000 and 15,000 complimentary Grower of the Year Awards 2012 Winner labels giving a welcome boost to promotion and marketing.

Winners last year included Mailordertrees, Majestic Trees, Pentland Plants, RF Lawrence & Sons and David Austin Roses.  

The glittering prize-giving ceremony will take place at the Lancaster London Hotel on 23 February 2012.
