Why are we looking for best plant ups?
In our experience, the horticultural community has much expertise and valuable experience to share. It is also a very supportive community, from ground staff to professional landscapers to Britain in Bloom volunteers. As a company that works closely with these dedicated communities, we thought it could be helpful to gather some of the best examples all in one place to share with one another. After all, we all subscribe to one major goal: to make the place where we live, work or visit a better place to be.
“This is our way of thanking customers as well as helping to facilitate the sharing of good practice and celebrating success,” comments Patience Atkinson-Gregory, Amberol’s Managing Director and daughter of one of Amberol’s original founders, Phil Atkinson.
“To thank people for taking part, we felt it was only fair to offer some form of thank you – and so we decided to make it a competition, giving people the opportunity to be rewarded for taking the time to share their ideas and suggestions. We are excited to see what people send in.”
To be considered for inclusion in the booklet, please email your recipes for success and images to email@example.com with your name and contact details. Remember that the closing date for entries is 31st December 2019. Winners will be announced in early 2020.
