HTA Business Development Manager Andrew Whelan comments, “I was delighted by the high level of interest we had from growers at Eastgro and again at the August British Plant Fair for the HTA National Plant Show. People we spoke to were pleased to see that we are promoting a top-level show for British-based nurseries and promised their support, either as exhibitors or visitors. The central location at Stoneleigh, the ‘no-nonsense’ approach and low exhibiting rates were all seen as added benefits. They were also pleased to learn that the HTA will be promoting the show, alongside the new Garden Expo event, to trade visitors next year.”
So far growers signed up to exhibit include: Kilworth Conifers, Duncan and Davies UK Ltd, Quality Ornamentals Ltd, Oakgate Nursery, Bransford Garden Plants Ltd, Allensmore Nurseries Ltd, Lowaters Nursery, Hawkesmill Nurseries Co Ltd, New Leaf Plants, Johnsons of Whixley, Farplants Sales Ltd, Wyevale Nurseries, Parkers Nurseries Ltd, Pentland Plants Ltd and West End Nurseries.
Located in a central, well known location the National Plant Show will provide good quality, serviced exhibition space at low cost exhibitor rates with discounts for HTA members.
The HTA National Plant Show is a strategic ‘plant only’ two day show which will run alongside the new Garden Expo trade show.
