The 2015 ‘Young Gardener of the Year’ competition launched last Friday sees the award winning landscape supplies company, Green-tech, once again supporting future generations of landscapers and garden designers.
Green-tech will be donating barks, its own brand of Mona irrigation systems and a range of growing media to the annual competition, organised by David Domoney in association with the Prince’s Foundation for Building Community.
The competition, celebrates ‘young green talent’ an ethos that runs through the Green-tech business, where many of the team began their working lives at Green-tech and over the years have progressed through the ranks.
Six of the UK’s leading Horticultural colleges will go head-to-head to create a sustainable garden that will be viewed by thousands of visitors at the Ideal Home Show in March. Each college will be provided with a 5.5m x 4m plot to both plan, design and style their area with small, urban gardens and terraces in mind. Judging will take place on the first day of the Ideal Home Show the 20th March 2015, where the winning gardens will be presented with their awards.
Richard Kay, Chairman of Green-tech comments:
‘The Young Gardener of the Year competition is hugely successful and testimony to the work and effort that goes into studying Horticulture. We love to get involved in this competition as it gives Green-tech the opportunity to engage with young horticulturists and gain invaluable feedback on our product range. The professionalism of the gardens that were created last year was outstanding, I look forward to seeing next year’s creations.
