Winners of the Landscape Ontario’s Awards of Excellence for Garden Centres and Growers were announced Monday at the ceremony luncheon that was held in conjunction with the Garden Centre Symposium at Garden & Floral Expo, Canada’s fall buying show for the green and floral industries.  The awards were created by Landscape Ontario as a way to provide the industry with an opportunity to learn who the growers of ‘the best’ are as well as the retailers who have been deemed as ‘excellent’.
 
“I can’t think of a better place for our growers and retailers to be recognized than among their buyers and suppliers who identify and appreciate the quality and excellence the winners produce,” said Kristen McIntyre, Awards Coordinator.
