Calling all Plant Breeders!!

PlantoftheyearPlant of the Year within the Nursery & Garden Awards is back in 2016.

Are you a plant breeder or introducer of foreign bred stock? Judges are looking for a plant with unique attributes that has been released within two years prior to entries closing.  They consider the plants suitability in a range of climatic conditions, resistance to pest and disease, seasonal availability and marketability.  The award is judged by a panel of experts with experience across multiple industry sectors.

Previous winners include:

2015 – Westringia Fruticosa Grey Box, is a wonderfully hardy Australian native shrub and landscaping gem accomplished by plant breeding specialist Ozbreed.
2014 – Princess Lavender, a spectacular hybrid was the result of a dedicated breeding program by Plant Growers Australia.
