Horticulture Week Landscape & Amenity Awards 2009 shortlist announced

A record number of entries for the Horticulture Week Landscape & Amenity Awards 2009 were judged at the end of last month -- and Horticulture Week is delighted to announce outstanding teams and businesses which have made it to the shortlist.

Scrutinising the bumper crop of entries -- up 50 per cent on last year's awards -- were landscape planning consultant Ian Phillips, green space consultants Sid Sullivan and Bob Ivison, Robin Tacchi Plants director Gill Tacchi, HW technical editor Sally Drury and HW landscape design editor Magda Ibrahim. Chair of the judging panel was HW editor Kate Lowe.  

The winners will be announced at an awards lunch and presentation, which will take place at the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel on London's Park Lane on Tuesday 3 November.

The headline sponsor of HW's Landscape & Amenity Awards is City & Guilds NPTC. Also sponsors are the Horticultural Trades Association, the Association of Professional Landscapers and Spanish Plants.   

The Professional Gardeners' Guild is an endorser of the awards.
