UK: Gearing up for the fifth HTA National Plant Show
The show, which celebrates its fifth birthday this year, provides a showcase for UK plant suppliers from seed, plug and liner suppliers to specimen plants and trees. Visitors will be able to see thousands of plant varieties from over 100 UK growers under one roof.
The HTA National Plant Show offers an array of inspirational special features to enable visitors to get the most out of the show. These include:
A New Plant Area which hosts the New Plant Awards, sponsored by the RHS, and showcases the best in new plant introductions from UK plant suppliers. There have been a record number of entries this year across the five award categories (annuals, herbaceous perennials, house plants, trees & conifers, and shrubs & climbers) putting this at the heart of the show. The Visitor Vote, sponsored by Floramedia, will also provide the chance for visitors to vote for their favourite new plants to decide for themselves.
The Seminar Area, sponsored by Barclaycard, which will host three diverse and captivating talks over the course of the show themed around getting the next generation interested in plants.
