We present awards for achievement and praise dedication in both education and business within horticulture whenever possible.

Throughout the year we present awards to deserving organisations and individuals alike to show our appreciation for their commitment to their work and ultimately the future of our industry. From dedicated students to innovative projects and extraordinary individuals, if you know of someone deserving recognition, make sure they get the appreciation they deserve and enter them for our awards below.
