Editorial ... Supporting horticultural excellence

The team at Horticulture Week are delighted to launch the leading industry awards schemes for 2018 supporting, encouraging and broadcasting excellence across all areas of horticulture business, people and places.

Our goal is to honour the achievements of those who make UK horticulture the vital and vibrant industry it is today, and to ensure that those achievements are recognised by the industry's customers, clients and stakeholders.

Business achievement is honoured in the Horticulture Week Business Awards. Categories celebrate outstanding businesses across the industry, including garden retail, commercial growing, amenity and more.

This exciting new business-focused scheme builds on our Garden Retail and UK Grower Awards programmes, to offer more benefits to more of the very best businesses in the horticulture industry.

These include an invitation to winners to join HW's prestigious Business Leaders' Board, the opportunity to take part in Business Leaders' Round Tables throughout the year, a place in our Business Leaders' Gallery and a profile in our Business Leaders' Directory.

New talent is honoured in the Horticulture Week New Generation Awards, with categories covering all sectors, while outstanding management of the UK's parks and gardens is once again honoured in the Horticulture Week Custodian Awards, which will run alongside Parks & Gardens Live, launched last year to great acclaim.

Winners of all three awards schemes will be presented next June at Horticulture Week LIVE, the biggest and most comprehensive gathering and celebration of the UK horticulture industry.

For more details of these exciting initiatives go to our Horticulture Week LIVE website at www.horticultureweeklive.com and click on the link to your chosen awards scheme to explore categories and how to enter. Any questions, don't hesitate to email me at the address below.
