Did you attend the 2017 Conference? If so please leave us your feedback.


With less than a month to go until the Chartered Institute of Horticulture’s annual conference, it’s time to take a look back at last year. In November 2016 we welcomed over 100 professional horticulturists to join us as we listened to the likes of Philip Pearson from APS Group and Anthony Snell of AJ & CI Snell to name just a few of our speakers.

In 2016 our conference left delegates and speakers with new professional contacts and a wealth of new knowledge and ideas. But don’t just take our word for it…

Well-organised and professional conference! – Anthony Snell, AJ & CI Snell

I am delighted to be associated with such a well-organised and thought-provoking event. Our profession is rightly very proud of our conference, well done to everyone involved – Phil Pearson APS Group
