The HTA Seasonal Plants Group
The HTA's latest specialist group was launched in January 2010 at the request of some of the largest and most influential producers of bedding and seasonal plants in the UK.
Designed to acquire market research, marketing and business support for the sector members meet approximately three times a year and hold the annual Bedding Focus Conference in October which considers the issues facing the industry.
The group includes most UK seed and young plant companies as well as national and regional producers of finished plants.
If you produce bedding or seasonal plants in plugs, packs, pots, baskets or containers and supply local independent retailers or national multiples then this exciting new group has something to offer you.
