There are just three weeks to go before the 13 October deadline of these prestigious awards - the winners of which could become familiar faces to shoppers across the country. This is because photographs of the winners have, in previous years, featured in both in-store promotions and national magazines.

Asda, for example, has featured 2010 Grower of the Year winner Guy Poskitt in its in-store magazine, which has a circulation of three million.

The supermarket has also featured photographs of previous winners - including Watts Farm's Joe Cottingham - on its in-store promotion cards alongside the slogan "working with award winning vegetable growers" and next to the Grower of the Year Awards logo.

The Grower of the Year Awards, which are organised by Horticulture Week and Grower, champion innovation, commitment and technical expertise across UK production horticulture.

They also provide an unrivalled opportunity for people from all aspects of the production horticulture community to gather together at the glittering prize-giving ceremony, due to take place at the Lancaster London Hotel on 23 February 2012.
