The CIH Award

An award held by only 50 horticulturists at one time for their significant contribution to horticulture.

Held by only 50 people at any one time, the Chartered Institute of Horticulture Award is given to individuals who have made a significant contribution to horticulture. We have a fantastic range of award holders from exceptional past CIH presidents to public figures, renowned botanists and and researchers. Recipients need not necessarily be CIH members and they are chosen by our Council Members and Past Presidents.
