- Lesley Palmer, Easton College, Floranova Ornamental Horticulture Research Scholarship, £1,500.
- Grower's Study Tour visiting protected ornamental nurseries across the east coast of America, organised by the British Protected Ornamentals Association (BPOA) and Horticultural Development Company, with the Ball Colegrave Scholarship, £2,500.
- Jamie Satterthwaite, Scotland's Rural College, BPOA/Peter Seabrook Bursary, £1,000.
On the study tour, Michael Smith of the BPOA technical committee and WD Smith & Son director said: "In the early days of my career I was lucky enough to be sent on a similar tour. Visiting these nurseries was an inspiration as well as spending so much time with established growers on the tour. We want to give some young growers the same opportunity to help build a future for our sector."
