UK Grower Awards 2016: Entry deadline extended!

Haven't submitted your entries on time? Don't worry! We have extended the deadline until 29 October following requests for a little more time.

Hosted by Horticulture Week, the UK Grower Awards are the longest standing and most sought after awards in the industry, giving professionals from the ornamental, fruit and vegetable crop industries, the chance to showcase their achievements, reward staff and ensure potential customers know how good they are.

Once again this year the Awards include an expanded range of categories for the fruit sector. Meanwhile, following their successful introduction last year, categories for growers of specialist crops will feature again this year across the ornamental, fruit and vegetable sectors.

Winner of the cider grower's award and overall grower of the year for fruit categories in 2015 was Thatcher's Cider. John Thatcher said the win "demonstrated to all of us that the hard work that goes in on a day to day basis is all worth it, especially when put under the spotlight and recognised in this way."

We are proud to announce that partnering the Awards this year are the British Growers Association, the National Association of Cider Makers and the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board.

For full details of all categories go to: www.thegrowerawards.co.uk or email Natasha at: natasha.hard@haymarket.com.

Good luck!
