Indoor Garden Design wins first New Covent Garden "plantpeople" award

Indoor Garden Design has won the New Covent Garden Flower Market inaugural Flower Market Awards.

The panel judging the awards included Caroline Marshall-Foster, The Florist magazine, Rona Wheeldon, Flowerona, Barry Porter, Porters Foliage and Helen Evans, Covent Garden Market Authority.

Evans said: "We have so many exciting and creative businesses as customers, and the Flower Market Awards are a fabulous way for us to celebrate their outstanding achievements. We were thrilled with the quality of the entries, and would like to thank and applaud all those who took the time to enter in our inaugural year."

Covent Garden is keen to emphasise how plants from Flower Market wholesalers Evergreen, Quality Plants, Arnott & Mason, LMills or Orchid House find their way into planting schemes on rooftops, walls, gardens, window-boxes and balconies in London.

The three shortlisted firms for the "Plantpeople of the Year 2013" award were:Clifton Nurseries, Collier and Company and Indoor Garden Design

Indoor Garden Design in London’s Highgate has had a bumper year, winning aBALI award for Interior Landscaping: Installation and 15 awards from eFIG. As the corporate market has contracted, so the firm has continued its growth into the events market,  with its Living with Nature Exhibition, most prominently at St Pancras Station and a collaborative venture with the University of Exeter at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

The IGD team is at the Flower Market daily, buying plants, sundries, foliage and flowers from many wholesalers.
