Calling all Plant Breeders!

Last year was the first time the industry recognised a Plant of the Year within the Nursery & Garden Awards and it is back in 2015.  The award was determined by a panel of judges with experience across multiple industry sectors.

Princess Lavender is the 2014 winner of the Plant of the Year award and this spectacular hybrid was the result of a dedicated breeding program by Plant Growers Australia.

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.
