Green-tech supports Ideal Young Gardener of the Year 2013

Green-tech is proud to support the 2013 ‘Ideal Young Gardeners of the Year’ competition launched recently ahead of the Ideal Home Show. As part of the initiative Green-tech will be supplying all entrants with essential soils, growing media and the revolutionary Mona Plant Irrigation System.


These annual awards offer students a great opportunity to showcase their work and celebrate the best of sustainable British gardening.  Each college will be given a 5.5m x 4m plot to both plan and design a unique and sustainable garden based on the theme of ‘sustainable urban gardens.’

Green-tech, the company with a wealth of experience in urban planting is only too pleased to support the Ideal Young Gardener of The Year 2013. The theme of ‘sustainable urban gardens’ fits with Green-tech’s company ethos of, supplying products that protect, enhance and improve plants and their environment. The company has a long history of sourcing products from sustainable or recycled materials but also manufacturing products that add value to the environment and the landscape.


This year’s show gardens will be judged by a panel led by TV Gardeners David Domoney and Alan Titchmarsh. The colleges will be awarded gold, silver gilt, silver or bronze medals with two further prestigious titles also being awarded for Best At Show & The People’s Choice.


David Domoney, organiser of the competition says: “During this competition, I have the privileged position of student mentor. I get to experience and support every stage of the competition with the students, from planning stages to the grand reveal, so I know just how much hard work and passion goes in to each and every one of the show gardens.

It’s an absolute joy to see the college’s creative plans flourish each year and to witness the team’s sense of achievement and pride at the finished result. What a fantastic career platform this competition is to build upon for these budding young designers.”


Kate Humes, Green-tech’s Marketing Manager adds: ‘’Green-tech as a company was only too keen to support the Ideal Young Gardener of The Year 2013. We work with colleges all over the UK to ensure that future generations of landscape designers are seeing first hand, the wide variety of rural and urban planting solutions available to the industry.’’
