President’s Award

President’s Award winners are handpicked by the President for their outstanding contribution to the industry.

Every year the President of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture chooses an individual who, in their opinion, epitomises the term horticulturist. Someone who has a true passion for the industry and everything it stands for and someone who has actively made a positive impact and given their life to horticulture. The winner of the award receives a commemorative plaque at the CIH Annual General meeting to demonstrate their invaluable contribution to this immensely important industry.
