Westland stand tour inspires this year's Rising Stars hopefuls


Candidates from this year’s Rising Stars programme sponsored jointly by Westland Horticulture and the Garden Centre Association spent time on the Westland stand at Glee yesterday gathering ideas and information for their 2022 workshop projects.


Around a dozen of the 16 entrants were joined by members of the Young People’s Horticulture Association (YPHA), an ideal opportunity to swap notes and share views.


The Rising Stars programme, which is designed to challenge trainees to develop their knowledge of the garden industry and think outside the box, is based on a series of workshops, after which entra.nts are assessed and a shortlist produced.  The finalists present their finished projects to GCA members at their annual conference to find the Rising Star of 2023..


Previous workshop events included visits to Westland’s Peterborough facility and to NIAB, Westland’s research and development partner.


Sustainability features prominently in this year’s workshop programme – so the tour of Westland’s stand will have given the candidates plenty of material to work with.


Here is the list of candidates, centres and their individual projects.
