We’ve scooped six New Plant Awards at the HTA National Plant Show

We’ve taken six New Plant Awards at the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA) National Plant Show at NAEC Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire yesterday (June 19, 2024).

They include Bronzes for Heucheras ‘Pinky Panky’ and ‘Snowy Panky’, Bronze for Philadelphus ‘Petite Perfume White’ and Silver for Philadelphus ‘Petite Perfume Pink’, Silver for Mahonia ‘Meteor’ and Gold for Sorbaria ‘Crimson Feather’.


Andy Johnson, our Managing Director, says:

“We’re so delighted with these wins. We put forward seven exciting new plants to be judged at the show and to have come away with six awards in total including a Gold and two Silvers is wonderful!

Mirroring trends

“Our 2024 entries were selected to mirror some of the trends our retail customers are seeing instore. They are all beneficial for wildlife and some of them are ideal for those with smaller green spaces who want something stunning in a pot that’s easy to care for. We also chose entries that can survive some of the changes in weather patterns we’re now experiencing too.

Show team

“Our knowledgeable, highly skilled and experienced team of professionals, including our Retail Sales Manager, Colin Stanley, our Garden Centre Sales Executive, Lisa Ashford will be at the show in Hall 1 at stand 41/50 again today (June 20) and can chat about our 2024 award-winners, as well as all the plants we offer.

New catalogue

We’re handing out our new full colour, printed 2025 catalogue as well. It features 14 great new additions for retailers to consider for next year too.

The HTA National Plant Show takes place again today, Thursday, June 20, in Halls 1 & 2 at NAEC Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.

Fabulous accolades

Andy adds:

“The HTA National Plant Show is viewed in the industry as THE place for garden centres and retailers to find their next bestselling new plant – something that will fit the needs of their customers and that inspires them too.

“The New Plant Awards showcase the very best introductions from UK plant suppliers so these six awards that we’ve won are fabulous accolades for us!”
