Run by Horticulture Week in association with event sponsors the NFU and Asda, the awards will highlight the achievements of businesses and professionals from across the sector over the past 18 months.

Those past 18 months have brought significant challenges for many UK growers who have battled a year of exceptionally difficult weather conditions.

But as always, the UK production horticulture industry has shown incredible resilience, and there has never been a more important time to recognize the extraordinary efforts that have been made by production staff – or simply to draw customers' attention to goals met and standards achieved, to reward innovation and technical excellence.

Winners will be announced at a glittering awards event at the Lancaster London Hotel.

To enter, either click here where you can enter online or download a copy of the entry kit to submit by post.

Alternatively, email awards manager Mel Sawbridge at melanie.sawbridge@haymarket.com for a hard copy of the entry kit or call 020 8267 4161.

The deadline for entries is Wednesday 31 October
