Receiving the award, which is the RHS’ highest level qualification, were Andrew Cotterill, Bernard Farrell, Matthew Pottage, David Sutton, Elias Mlimbila, Rosie Yeomans and Christopher Skinner.

The Centenary Prize for the RHS level 2 General Certificate in Horticulture, was awarded to Louise Furniss, of Chiswick, London and the Anne Menhinick Prize, given to the candidate with the highest mark in the RHS level 2 Certificate in Horticulture and under 30, was awarded to Laura Mythen of Hertfordshire.

The Hector Harrison Award, for the highest marks for the RHS level 3 Advanced Certificate in Horticulture, was awarded to Caroline Corkett of Ampthill, Bedfordshire. Matthew Smith, of Purley, Surrey, was awarded The Chittenden Award for the highest overall mark in the RHS level 3 Diploma in Horticulture.

RHS Director General, Sue Biggs, said, "If we can recreate the success here today, we will, I hope, have ambassadors to spread the word about the RHS and make horticulture a career to be proud of."
