Grow Your Own Awards

This year Glee have partnered up with Grow Your Own, a consumer magazine which will see the introduction of the prestigious Great British Growing Awards at the show this September.

These awards recognise all that is great within the gardening industry – from tool companies, to seed suppliers, garden writers to fruit nurseries and everything in between. The awards also recognise garden volunteers and community growing spaces.

The Winners

The winners of the awards are voted for by the general public and readers of the Grow Your Own magazine, with the awards ceremony and trophy presentation taking place on Tuesday 11th September at Glee.  

In addition to the awards Glee is working closely with Grow Your Own on a consumer competition which will see 10 lucky consumers win the opportunity to attend Glee. As well as getting a chance to attend the show, the winners will also receive a guided tour, access to the VIP lounge, complimentary refreshments and a VIP limited edition goodie bag.

Product Competition


The 10 chosen consumers who have won the opportunity to attend Glee will also get the chance to vote for their favourite products whilst touring the show floor, and their favourite/chosen product will then win the converted Grow Your Own consumer choice award.
